Helping Communities Get Back to Work
Interview with Governor Tim Kaine
The July 7 episode of "JobQuest" featured an exclusive interview with Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, who discussed economic issues and the challenges facing many Blue Ridge PBS communities.
Kaine acknowledged that times are tough for many job seekers, but noted that Virginia has a good education system and good global connections that will help the state's economy to recover.
"Our unemployment rate, while it's not what we would like, is much better than the national average," he said. "All of the indicators right now would suggest that we will come out of it sooner and stronger than other states."
