Congressmen Dave Reichert & Adam Smith’s 2011 HIRE America Jobs Fair
Join Congressmen Adam Smith (D-09) and Dave Reichert (R-08) for their bipartisan Jobs Fair. They have heard and understand the common requests of local business leaders and jobs seekers, and are working across party lines to create jobs and an environment for economic growth. Bringing local businesses and individual constituents together in one place is a great way to increase employment, improve the local economy, and gather feedback on how local families are coping during these difficult economic times.
