McKenna pushes jobs plan, plugs work with NASCAR driver
He's traveling to Bellevue, Kent and Bothell to release his “Jobs Plan 2.0” which is an updated version of the proposal he outlined in November. In a press release, he said he developed a new version following conversations with “hundreds of small business owners and managers in forums across the state.”
“I sought them out, we exchanged ideas, and I think this final product is not only a collaborative effort we can be proud of, but a plan that can actually be effective in growing business activity and getting more people back to work," he says in the release.
The main event is at 10 a.m. in Kent where he will visit Tri-Tec Manufacturing.
Meanwhile, back in Olympia, McKenna's staff in the Attorney General's Office was busy putting out a press release touting his support of Stop the Texts Day, a nationwide effort to educate teenagers on the dangers of texting while driving. One of the highlights of the campaign which begins today is a public service announcement from the Ad Council featuring NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne of Washington.
