Congressman Carney Hosts Roundtables at Delaware Tech to Launch “Make it in Delaware Week”

GEORGETOWN – Congressman John Carney held a series of events and meetings with Delaware’s manufacturing community in an effort to gather ideas for legislative proposals that would bring more manufacturing jobs to Delaware, and better prepare job-seekers to obtain manufacturing jobs that are currently vacant.

These events included a roundtable conversation with manufacturing employees at Delaware Tech’s Innovation and Technology Center (ITC) in New Castle, where he talked to former auto employees and job trainers to discuss challenges faced by manufacturing workers as well as skills and training needed to take advantage of future job opportunities. The roundtable was moderated by Tom McCarthy, director of Delaware Tech’s ITC.

Carney hosted a second roundtable later in the week at Delaware Tech’s Theodore C. Freeman Powerplant Education Building in Georgetown. This roundtable focused on manufacturing opportunities for growth in the state and the federal role in revitalizing American manufacturing. The event was moderated by Chris Moody, director of Corporate and Community Training at Delaware Tech’s Georgetown Campus.
