SHELBY TO VISIT CHEROKEE COUNTY
Statewide Jobs and Industry Tour
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, February 19, 2014, at 8:00 AM, U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) will visit Cherokee County to meet with leadership and employees at KTH in Leesburg.
The visit marks the 47th stop in Shelby’s statewide jobs and industry tour, during which he will visit a business in each of Alabama’s 67 counties.
Shelby issued the following statement on the visit:
“Job creation must be our top priority as a nation, and it will be the focus of my statewide travel. It is critical that I hear firsthand from job creators and workers how federal policies are affecting economic growth, and what we can do to create more jobs in Alabama. These conversations with my constituents have always played a critical role in informing how I vote on issues before the Senate, and I look forward to traveling throughout the state again this year.”
