U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine while on the campaign trail called me to discuss his vision for the country’s economic future. The key points of the plan are growth, talent and balance. Growth to encourage economic growth and job creation immediately, talent strategies to ensure the United States has the most talented workforce in the world, and “balance” to address our fiscal challenges and change the tone of our politics.
Tim Kaine has a proven track record of working across the aisle. U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine said during our interview on Community Conversations “you might be a proud democrat or republican but I have a proven track record to working together. I did it as mayor and as governor. I will partner with my Senate colleagues, whatever the party they represent. I must listen, find common ground and move forward.”
Tim Kaine goes on to explain that as Lt. governor and governor, he worked with two republican controlled houses and together won the award for “best manage state, “best state for business” and the “best state to raise a child.” Kaine said ” we knew how to work together regardless of the party.”
