Republicans to Hold Forums Around Massachusetts
September 14, 2011- BOSTON— Representative Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth) is pleased to announce that the 2011 G.O.P. Jobs Tour will be stopping in Bridgewater on September 27th and Sandwich on October 4th.
Announced during a press conference at the State House, the Massachusetts House Republican Caucus will embark on a six-week Jobs Tour. The Tour will make initial stops in 7 communities across the Commonwealth, with additional dates and stops forthcoming.
With the state’s unemployment rate hovering around 7.6% and the national unemployment rate holding steady at 9.1%, the Republican Caucus will provide businesses and constituents with a platform to propose ideas for improving the job climate in the Bay State.
“I feel it is important to reach out to our constituents to see how they think we can best utilize our resources to jumpstart the economy,” said Representative Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth). “Many of the best ideas on Beacon Hill come from outside of Beacon Hill.”
“The 2011 G.O.P. Jobs Tour will give residents across the Commonwealth a chance to share their expectations and concerns with elected officials relative to the job climate in Massachusetts,” said House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “I encourage all residents to take advantage of this opportunity to have a candid discussion with Republican lawmakers about how we can improve the large and small business climate here in the Bay State.”
Joining Republican legislators at the Tour stops will be invited members from the business community, and local and regional Chambers of Commerce.
