Also Delivers Keynote Address at Lighthouse Bank Business and Economic Conference
SALINAS, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today led a roundtable discussion at the Grower-Shipper Association of Central California with area agri-business and community leaders. Together, they discussed the greatest threats to the region’s growth, their personal livelihoods and their quality of life.
“Salinas and the greater Central Coast have been coined ‘the salad bowl of the world’ for good reason,” said Fiorina. “The growth of this region has a significant impact on the economy of our state and nation, and the local leaders here know best the kind of support they need to help them grow, create jobs and strengthen the community. That is why I am here today – to listen and learn directly from them. And as senator, I would make it a priority to deliver the solutions necessary to better support this important part of our great state.”
Since Carly announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate in November, she has traveled across California to hear directly from local communities about the challenges they are facing in their communities, businesses and homes. In the coming months, Carly will continue to travel across the state to discuss our most pressing issues and how best to collaborate on effective solutions. Earlier this week, she held a roundtable with local leaders in San Diego to discuss challenges involved in growing the region’s economy, creating jobs and improving the quality of life for their employees, constituents and communities.
Prior to the roundtable in Salinas, Carly delivered the keynote address at the Lighthouse Bank Business and Economic Conference in Santa Cruz, where she discussed the importance of supporting our economy’s true job creators – small businesses – through less regulation, lower taxes and greater access to capital.
