Good afternoon everyone! Great discussion! Carole, thanks for sharing about your background. I grew up in a family of makers as well. I am very focused on creating jobs for folks who thrive when they are working with their hands.
Last week my business, United Sewing and Design, was one of the featured businesses at an SBDC event at the capital. I spoke with Michelle Gilman, the Commissioner of the CT Department of Administrative Services. She mentioned that one of her initiatives is to focus on enhancing technical education in the public technical schools. It will be interesting to see what comes of that.
Thanks also Deb for highlighting your program!
