LT. GOVERNOR BROWN TO DISCUSS JOBS AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

 

OPPORTUNITIES IN WESTERN MARYLAND

 

 

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (April 25, 2013) – This weekend, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will visit Hagerstown to meet with local leaders and highlight the region’s efforts to create jobs and spur economic growth.

 

Tomorrow, Friday, Lt. Governor Brown will visit the Mack/Volvo Powertrain manufacturing plant to tour the facilities and meet with management and workers about the Administration’s commitment to supporting and expanding the manufacturing industry in Maryland.

 

Saturday, the Lt. Governor and Department of Labor Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) Secretary Leonard J. Howie, III will hold a roundtable discussion at Hagerstown Community College with Western Maryland (Garrett, Allegany, Washington) workforce development and education leaders to discuss the Administration’s EARN legislation. The legislation, passed by the General Assembly this Session and signed into law by Governor O’Malley this month, promotes workforce training collaborations between businesses, government, and nonprofits, provides workers with state-of-the-art training and fills critical voids in companies.

 

Lt. Governor Brown leads the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s economic development portfolio. In addition to his role as Chair of the Joint Legislative and Executive Commission on Oversight of Public-Private Partnerships, the Lt. Governor chairs Maryland’s FastTrack initiative – part of Maryland Made Easy (www.easy.maryland.gov<http://www.easy.maryland.gov/) – to streamline the state permitting process for businesses and developers and serves as Chair of the Governor’s Subcabinet on Base Realignment and Closure.
