Politics

Mayor-elect Alvin Brown is attending the first annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting today in Chicago focusing on business growth and job creation.  Brown was invited by President Bill Clinton to attend the bipartisan meeting, along with a diverse group of 700 participants from across the country including Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, and many other business and civic leaders.

“As Mayor, I will strongly focus on job creation and economic development. I was honored to be invited to the CGI America meeting and am working with business and civic leaders from across the nation to gather ideas, study best practices, and forge relationships that will help efforts to boost Jacksonville’s economic future,” said Brown.    

Today's CGI America schedule for Mayor-elect Brown includes the opening plenary session entitled "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs" where short-term and long-term solutions for economic recovery in the U.S. will be discussed, a working group session on various job creation subjects, and another plenary session, "Education in America: Regaining our Edge" where preparing students to succeed in the new 21st century workforce will be discussed.

The first CGI meeting to be focused specifically on U.S. issues, CGI America brings together top business and civic leaders and elected officials with the goal of finding creative and innovative ways to drive business growth and job creation.  The meeting takes place in Chicago from June 29-30.  President Bill Clinton formed the Clinton Global Initiative in 2005 with the goal of bringing together global leaders to find solutions for our world’s greatest challenges.  More information can be found at www.CGIAmerica.org and www.ClintonGlobalInitiative.org.
