Whether running for office or not, push for more manufacturing jobs
An interesting item in The Washington Times this week: former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe has been busy making speeches throughout Virginia. But he's also been busy launching a clean energy car company, manufacturing "environment-friendly and energy-efficient vehicles, including compact cars and sport utility vehicles."
In addition to the green jobs at his GreenTech Automotive Inc., McAuliffe is also "converting a shuttered paper mill in southern Virginia into a renewable-energy plant." The new plant might eventually create 100 new jobs.
As the owner of various manufacturing concerns in the U.S., McAuliffe seems ready to give China a run for its money in the auto business. He says, “Go to China, buy a manufacturing company, bring it back, sell cars back to China. All made here in America.”
