MARTHA COAKLEY, STEVE KERRIGAN OUTLINE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH AND COMPETITIVENESS IN MASSACHUSETTS
Growth Strategy Focuses On Investing In Workforce, Regional Development
BOSTON - Wednesday, October 8, 2014 – Martha Coakley and Steve Kerrigan today outlined a comprehensive, inclusive and forward-looking plan to turn the Massachusetts economy around and give everyone a fair shot at opportunity.
The plan focuses on making strategic investments in our workforce, building economic growth in each region, creating a fairer and more competitive business climate, and promoting fairness for all workers.
“Massachusetts has survived one of the toughest recessions in our memory, and now it’s time to build an economy back on our terms,” said Coakley. “I believe that means we must continue to invest in our greatest strength – our people. Our economic plan calls for investments in our education system to give every person the skills they need to compete in a global economy, and building upon the unique strengths of each region to grow jobs across the Commonwealth.”
“Martha Coakley and I know we need to invest in Massachusetts, to grow jobs in each region and support the hubs of innovation in addition to Greater Boston,” said Kerrigan. “Because Martha is from the Berkshires and I’m from Central Massachusetts, we see the importance of that regional approach, we see the importance of investing in education and our people and our plan will help continue to lift our economy and all workers – not just the ones at the top.”
