Congresswoman tours local businesses to see products made in her district
This week, Speier did more than write -- she traveled around her district (California’s 12th, which includes parts of San Francisco and San Mateo) and visited with local manufacturers.
Writing for the San Francisco Chronicle, T.L. Viens spoke with Speier during her visits:
The congresswoman said she aims to 'find ways to incentivize companies to bring manufacturing back [to America.]' She said the best way to create jobs is to, '[buy] products being built by your neighbor, by a kid who just graduated from college. We need to see ‘Made in America’ more.'
