Gov. Patrick: Job Growth Strategy Working

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick

During a visit to Pittsfield on Monday, Massachusetts Governor Deval Partrick touted the state’s strategy to increase job growth.

“We have a very deliberate strategy to grow jobs and opportunity and it’s based on investing in education, in innovation, and in infrastructure. And it’s a strategy that is working," Patrick said. "We’re growing faster than most of our neighbors, twice as fast as the national growth rate, we’re No. 1 in the nation in economic competitiveness and venture funding, and a whole host of other areas and we’re playing to our strengths. So, I believe in this strategy, we continue to promote it, we’re going to work on it right through to the last day I’m in office.”

Patrick spoke outside of Nuclea Biotechnologies in Pittsfield.
