Van Hollen right for Senate
FROM: TOM HORGAN ELKTON
Chris Van Hollen is leading the charge to make it easier for Marylanders to get the skills they need to succeed in our 21st century economy, and he’s helping businesses hire the talented men and women they need to make our economy succeed.
Chris knows that education and training is never complete. He has been a vocal supporter of President Obama’s community college plan, which would help provide recent high school students with a high-quality education, and affords the chance for more citizens to be trained in fields of their choosing.
We also need to connect students with jobs when they have completed their education. In Congress, Chris was a co-sponsor of the Workforce Development Tax Credit Act, which would offer federal tax credits to companies who create apprenticeships programs and hire those apprentices — a win-win solution that helps employees and employers.
He has also worked directly with the community. When Montgomery College needed funding for an innovative biotechnology education program that included a partnership with a local hospital, they came to Chris for help securing the resources they needed. He also helped obtain a grant for community colleges across Maryland to train workers in the growing cybersecurity industry.
Van Hollen is focused on building an economy that works for all, not just the top 1 percent — that’s why he has my support for the U.S. Senate
