Senator Mensch and Senator Boscola Announce Economy, Business, and Jobs Meeting

Harrisburg – Senator Bob Mensch (R- Montgomery, Bucks, and Berks) and Senator Lisa Boscola (D – Lehigh, Monroe, and Northampton) are pleased to announce that the next meeting of the Economy, Business and Jobs (EBJ) Caucus will take place on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 11 a.m. and will feature the PA Business Council (PBC).  The meeting will take place in the Capitol Media Center, Rm. 1 in the East Wing.

The PBC will present their comprehensive data tracking project known as the Pennsylvania Scorecard – a performance-based measurement tool that ranks states’ competitiveness. Using a database of 47 different metrics, the scorecard system examines and compares key factors for economic development using up-to-date and objective analyses.

The PBC will be represented by Dave Patti, President & CEO. He will be joined by Pennsylvania Scorecard project developers Michael E. Greenber, Ph.D., associate professor of political science at Shippensburg University, and Kathy Woolever, CAE, founder and president of Datalytics, Inc.

The bi-partisan EBJ Caucus was born from an interest to grow jobs and strengthen Pennsylvania’s economy.  The Caucus examines ways to break down barriers that hinder economic expansion within the Commonwealth. The goal of the Caucus is to bring more good-paying, family-sustaining jobs to Pennsylvania, while keeping the jobs we already have.

Media are invited to attend.
