Chamber endorsed at-large candidate Eric Jones

An excerpt from an email from at-large council candidate Eric J. Jones:
I am proud to announce that we have been Endorsed by the DC Chamber of Commerce. With 75 years of service and more than 1700 members the DC Chamber is the premier advocate for business growth and development in Washington, D.C.

As a representative of the largest construction based association for the last 7 years, I have worked alongside the DC Chamber on issues such as hiring returning citizens, investing in our DC Public Schools through the award winning Buff and Scrub Program and developing innovative workforce development programs to improve the lives of DC residents.

As your next At-Large Councilman, I will introduce legislation which will improve our job training programs and create partnerships with our local education and business communities. In addition I will also work to improve the Department of Small and Local Business Development and introduce programs to help out returning citizens and those who have been chronically unemployed or underemployed.
