The private sector, not the government, is the key to creating sustainable jobs – Candidate Tim Griffin

LITTLE ROCK – Second District Congressional candidate, U.S. Army Reservist and former U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin today issued the following statement after the government reported that unemployment remained at 10 percent while employers shed 85,000 jobs in December:

“Today’s disappointing unemployment numbers are further evidence we need a change of policy and leadership. The private sector – not the government – is the key to creating sustainable jobs and maintaining American innovation.  The 2nd District needs a representative who will vote for policies that work for us, not against us.”
