The executive director of Rochester-based Workforce Development, Inc. is on his way to Washington, D.C., for a White House jobs forum on Thursday.

Randy Johnson will be among 130 experts in various fields who will share ideas on the economic recovery and what needs to be done next to improve the U.S. economy.

"My main message will be that there are a lot of moving parts in this recovery process," said Johnson. "Some of them have not jelled yet--we need to connect with the existing things we already have in place and position the economy for success."

Johnson shared details of his White House trip with KTTC NewsCenter before boarding his plane for Washington. He credited Congressman Tim Walz for the invitation to participate in the "Forum on Jobs and Economic Growth."

In a statement to reporters, the White House is calling the forum "an opportunity for the President and the economic team to hear from some of the leading CEOs, small business owners, labor leaders, nonprofit heads and thinkers about ideas for continuing to grow the economy and put Americans back to work."

Johnson will be one of the panels following initial remarks by experts, and by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. The panels feature people who can offer suggestions on spurring economic growth by encouraging the creation of "green jobs"... by rebuilding the nation's infrastructure... by increasing American exports... and by helping small businesses to find capital to expand.


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Government; News/Current Events; US: Minnesota
KEYWORDS: forum; jobs; rochester; white
Congressman Tim Walz (D-Mn) supported that great Stimulus bill, why can't a intelligent Minnesotan like Michelle Bachman pick someone to school the White House in Macroeconomics?

Let’s not send Mn Gov Pawlenty either, the guy can’t even explain why balancing the budget should be done with tax reductions to grow the private sector

And only Obama will understand your message, the rest of us don’t speak that

This guy is yet another liberal political hack running some “program”. What a total sack. It is hard to believe he’ll travel to WDC for a free meal and a cluster-**** with his liberal buddies. Like these gathered morons really care about jobs for Americans. He’s probably looking for4 more grants of your money from Nobama’s stash.
