Econ Group Calls On Gov.-Elect Snyder For Help 12-20-2010

A news conference was held Monday morning to announce a new Genesee County economic development strategy, and its developers are calling on Gov.-elect Rick Snyder for help.
Officials told TV5 the effort could mean up to 2,000 new jobs over the next year, and 12,000 over the next five years.
The news conference talked about the city of Flint and Genesee County partnering with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to create the jobs.
Officials from the Genesee County Regional Chamber of Commerce outlined what they are calling a playbook to help move forward with the new venture.
Local officials want to work closely with Snyder’s new administration to create work for people in Flint and Genesee County. They are asking for the governor-elect to appoint several of his advisers to work directly with Flint and Genesee County to make this happen.
The vice president of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce, Janice Karcher, said there are no specific companies or job numbers yet, but there are always plans happening behind the scenes. Karcher said they are confident the new initiative will create jobs.
“There are initiatives inside the playbook that point to new training services that will be available to actually help position people for job opportunities,” said Karcher. “And I encourage anyone who is interested in employment and accessing training to start with the Michigan Works! career alliance.”
Karcher said Michigan Works! is where the Chamber gets its employees from for new projects.
