Senator Charles Schumer will be in the North Country tomorrow to discuss jobs.
The Democrat will arrive at the Nova Bus facility in Plattsburgh at 2:45 p.m. today, where he’ll tour the manufacturing plant and meet with local business and community leaders.
Schumer spokesman Max Young said the Senator will hear from constituents about how the recession has impacted the economy and get ideas from officials as to how best to put people to work here in the North Country.
Nova Bus recently won a major contract to supply buses and transportation infrastructure to localities in Hawaii.
Schumer will also address unfair trade practices he says are – quote – “tilting the playing field against American manufacturers.”
