Maggie Hassan, and Gray Chynoweth of Dyn.
Maggie Hassan has wasted no time in getting out there to see what it the business community needs in her campaign for NH Governor. Today she was at DYN (Dynamic Solutions Inc) in Manchester. She spoke with Manchester Community College President Dr. Susan Huard and Dyn business leaders for a tour of the company and a roundtable discussion on how we can align New Hampshire’s educational system with the needs of 21st century businesses.
She talked about the need to better our public education to build a better future workforce in New Hampshire. “As I travel across the state and talk to business leaders, educators and workers, a story I have heard all too often is that while New Hampshire businesses are looking to hire new employees, they are struggling to find qualified applicants to fill these often hi-tech jobs,” said Hassan. “I’m running for Governor to make New Hampshire’s workforce the best in the nation by aligning our educational system with the needs of 21st century businesses like Dyn. This is how we’ll attract great businesses, create jobs and continue to lead in innovation.”
“With strong public schools, community colleges, voc-techs, and world-class colleges and universities, New Hampshire’s educational facilities are the envy of many states. However, the state legislature has cut public universities by 50 percent. We need to make education a priority so we can attract business and create jobs here in New Hampshire,” said Hassan.
“We need to grow our talent pool and make it easier for businesses to tap into that talent pool,” said Hassan. “I’m here today to hear how Dyn has been successful and what we can do to attract more business like it to New Hampshire to provide good jobs and opportunity to Granite Staters.”
