Republican Lawmakers to Hold Press Conference

Republican lawmakers, led by House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R–North Reading), will hold a press conference tomorrow to announce the launch of the 2011 G.O.P. Jobs Tour.

Kicking off September 20th in Gardner, the Tour is designed to provide businesses and constituents with a platform to propose ideas of how the Republican Caucus can assist in improving the job climate in Massachusetts. With initial stops in seven communities across the Commonwealth, it is the hope of the House Republican Caucus that the 2011 G.O.P. Jobs Tour will help provide real-life insight and feedback regarding the Bay State’s current 7.6% unemployment rate. Joining Republican members along the Tour will be local business leaders and representatives from Chambers of Commerce.

Representative Jones will be joined at the press conference by members of the House Republican Caucus as well as Jon Hurst, President of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts.

The press conference will be held tomorrow (Wednesday) at 11:00 a.m. outside of Room 124 in the State House.
