McAuliffe Talks Economic Goals at PVCC Campaign Stop

Posted: Updated:

Terry McAuliffe's campaign to become Virginia's next governor made a stop at Piedmont Virginia Community College Monday.

The democratic candidate toured the Stultz Center for Business and Career Development, which houses the school's workforce services center.

A significant part of McAuliffe's platform is bringing more all-inclusive workforce training sites to the commonwealth.

"I think we need to do a much better job here in Virginia of streamlining the process, we need a one-stop shop for folks. Right now it's very difficult, very complex. You have to go to different agencies, different funding sources. How about if we had a regional development center in different parts of Virginia?" he said.

McAuliffe says his vision is to diversify Virginia's economy so it's not relying so much on the federal government.
