2014-2015: Special Ad Hoc Committee for the Springfield City Council – Workforce Development

President of the Springfield City Council, Michael Fenton, selected city residents for special ad hoc committees to address key issues in the communities. This committee, chaired by councilor Tim Allen, is developing three approaches to strengthen the workforce: adult basic education and training for under-skilled and unemployed residents, advanced manufacturing training, and connections with local college students to retain them as part of the city.
