There is a misconception that Government can create jobs. Jobs are created in the private sector. Government needs to make sure that the infrastructure is in place to attract new business and help current business expand. We cannot forget the employers already in place. If we have good schools for families, a trained work force and a region that is attractive to relocate to you will succeed. At the State level we need to work to help the local Governments make these things happen. Looking to get broadband to rural areas like Northern Michigan is a huge piece of this as well. I will work with the local Governments to represent them and coordinate planning through the district.
