Congressman Visclosky announced that he will attend and speak at Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson's Job Compliance Forum next week. The forum is intended to discuss compliance guidelines for local, state, and federal projects taking place in Gary and explain how Gary residents can be considered for jobs on those projects. In addition to Mayor Freeman-Wilson and Congressman Visclosky, representatives from compliance and other City of Gary departments will attend the forum.
"This forum is meant to educate the public on how compliance works," said Mayor Freeman-Wilson. "We want Gary residents to be considered for employment on the major projects that are coming to our city, and we want them to be prepared. This forum is one of several ways that we intend to keep citizens informed and trained for these job opportunities."
Congressman Visclosky said of the forum, "Now, more than ever, we need to create good-paying jobs for Northwest Indiana residents. I am pleased to take part in this forum, which will map out compliance guidelines for projects funded by public dollars and help local residents understand the requirements they must follow. Such dialogue will not only make government more efficient, but will help to ensure that Northwest Indiana tax dollars create Northwest Indiana jobs."
