McDonnell Names Members Of Va Rural Jobs Council

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A council created by Gov. Bob McDonnell is continuing efforts to focus on creating jobs in Virginia's rural communities.
 
McDonnell named state lawmakers, as well as leaders in the business, manufacturing, agriculture and health care industries as members of the Rural Jobs Council. Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling will chair the council, and Secretary of Commerce and Trade Jim Cheng and Agriculture Secretary Todd Haymore will serve as co-vice chairs.
 
Officials say the group will make recommendations to address the challenges to economic growth in rural Virginia and develop a statewide rural infrastructure plan that addresses transportation, education, and community development. It will build upon the work done by the governor's Commission on Job Creation and Economic Development.
