Shane Broadway, candidate for Arkansas Lieutenant Governor, will kick off his More and Better Jobs For Arkansas statewide tour Tuesday. Governor Mike Beebe will join Broadway at Power Technology, Inc. in Alexander, a family-owned, Arkansas-based manufacturer.[more]
“We need more and better jobs for Arkansas’s future,” Broadway said. “I’ve worked inside state and local government and with the private sector to create jobs. That’s what I will do as Lieutenant Governor. I can do it because I’ve done it.”
“If your truck breaks down, you take it to a guy who fixes trucks. If your roof leaks, you find a guy who knows how to fix a roof. I’m the guy in the race for Lieutenant Governor who knows how to create jobs,” Broadway said. “We all know that in Arkansas you need a plan of action, jobs don’t just appear at your doorstep. I’ve worked with Governor Beebe and his team, that has done a great job attracting new jobs to Arkansas.
“We need more jobs and better jobs. We need to continue bringing more of the high tech, high paying jobs of the future to Arkansas. We have the educational system and the ready and willing workforce. I want our children and grandchildren to be able to live, work and worship in Arkansas and a good job makes that possible.”
Broadway has worked for the Saline County Economic Development Corporation since it began implementing its strategic plan 5 years ago. As an economic developer and state legislator, he has worked closely with small businesses and industry, local community and education leaders and entrepreneurs to attract new jobs and retain existing jobs for hard working Arkansans across the state.
