– April 21, 2014 5:30 pm
MANASSAS, Va. – Governor Terry McAuliffe will appear Tuesday at a town hall meeting in Manassas.
The governor will speak to employees at Micron Technology’s manufacturing plant on Godwin Drive.
The Governor will highlighting the progress the administration has made during the first 100 days in office and his priorities moving forward on issues he deems central to the Northern Virginia.
The event comes as McAuliffe administration released its first 100 day report chronicling McAuliffe’s time in office since his January inaugural in Richmond. Since then, the governor has announced 2,642 new jobs created in the state, including 12 in Stafford County at Washington Square Associates, according the report.
“Since my first day in office, I, along with members of my administration, have worked hard to find mainstream, common-sense solutions to problems and create a stronger and more economically competitive Commonwealth,” stated Governor McAuliffe in a press release. “We have already made significant progress in investing our transportation dollars wisely, creating more jobs in every region of the Commonwealth, and preparing our workforce for a 21st Century economy. I am proud of the accomplishments my administration has made, and I am confident that we will continue to put people above politics to build a stronger economic foundation for the next generation of Virginians.”
The Governor has not been able to sign a comprehensive budget that would fund the state government. Legislators in Richmond remain at an impasse on expanding Medicaid, or Obamacare, in the state. Democrats presented a budget that would accept federal monies to expand the federal healthcare program while state Republicans want to study on the issue.
Following his presentation, the governor will then take questions from the audience. The event is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.
