Alp pledges dedicated jobs fund for regional airport
HARTFORD- The mayor of Hartford says he will commit $35 million over three years to support an airport plan for western Connecticut that could rival New York’s New Haven and New Haven-West Haven airports.
Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone made the announcement Monday at a recept포항출장마사지강남 마사지ion for the Regional Industrial Development Program in Hartford.
“We have great potential for manufacturing, but we also have some incredible talent in our community,” said Curtatone, who spoke alongside local officials from the state and federal government. “It is imperative that we move forward to move the U.S. manufacturing sector back to our state so that we can create more good jobs and keep those jobs here in New Haven.”
The plan, presented by Curtatone and his top aides and described in a city task force’s recommendation in May, would create a $350 million regional manufacturing industry that includes hundreds of카지노 게임 sk퇴폐 마사지illed manufacturing jobs, a host of facilities in western Connecticut, new manufacturing operations, a new airport, and an urban development park.

In a news conference with city officials and the Connecticut Business Chamber, Curtatone described his proposal to help the state’s biggest city succeed while improving the quality of life of the residents it represents.
“My goal is for the state to be able to invest in this region,” he said. “Connecticut’s major regional airports need to be as attractive and vibrant as New York’s airport. I want to make that happen.”
Curtatone touted that this region has a diverse population and provides “a
