July 12, 2012

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Tuscarora Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Mary-Anne Gordon and Tuscarora Area Development Association board member Don MacAskill joined representatives of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry and other local chamber leaders from across the state to attend a breakfast policy discussion Thursday with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett.

“It was an honor to attend this intimate conversation with a handful of other chambers. The Corbett administration has proven they are available to our local businesses and want to know more about us and our needs,” Gordon said in a news release.

The program included presidents and executive directors of many statewide local chamber partners. The agenda included opening remarks by the governor, followed by a discussion on the newly adopted state budget and policy issues of concern to job creators, according to the news release.

“As governor, my top priority is private-sector job creation. I am committed to creating an economic environment where state government and business can work together to ensure job growth across the commonwealth,” Corbett said in the news release.

PA Chamber President Gene Barr applauded the governor “for his ongoing efforts to make Pennsylvania a state that is more inviting to business growth and job creation,” the news release stated.

It cited a state budget that “continues to right-size state government, injects innovation and new efficiencies into the delivery of government services, helps the private sector hire workers and grow, and ensures a greater quality of education for more Pennsylvania students.”
