As we continue to work toward transforming Flint into a 21st century sustainable city, we must begin to plan for future job growth and economic development. On Thursday, December 3, President Barack Obama hosted a forum on jobs and economic growth at the White House. The President invited small business owners, CEO’s, labor leaders, economist and everyday Americans to be a part of this discussion.
The President now wants to expand the conversation beyond the nation’s capitol. He has asked mayors from across the country to host a similar forum in their respective cities. The purpose of these forums is to explore every possible avenue for job creation.
Mayor Walling will host a Jobs Growth and Economic Development forum on Thursday, December 10, 2009 from 6:00 p.m until 8:00 p.m. in the 3rd floor city hall council chambers at 1101 South Saginaw Street.
