Gov. Bullock Tours Anderson Steel

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - Governor Steve Bullock was in Great Falls this morning to promote the Main Street Montana Project and to show its purpose.

The Governor said "the Main Street Montana Project is really a bottom's up effort to create an economic development plan for the State of Montana."

It was a year ago that Montana colleges, with Great Falls College MSU at the top, received a $25M grant to partner with private sector business to develop careers in high demand areas.

Great Falls College MSU CEO Susan J. Wolff said that "this is really I think the 1st time in my career where business and industry and apprenticeship where the educators, we all come together to benefit our local businesses throughout the state and throughout the world."

The Governor toured Anderson Steel to see how they help with the college and the community, and their efforts in workforce development.

Bullock said of Anderson Steel, "here's a business that has been in Montana since 1970. In order for a business like this to grow, I mean they need to make sure they have a pool of talented and trained workers. We had the opportunity to meet one of the workers who came from Great Falls College, has been here for a year and really doing some incredible things."

The governor also says that the talented and trained workforce is important for all companies statewide.

Governor Bullock encouraging local business said that "any business located in our state or that might want to come to our state never has the impediment of saying 'I'd be here only if there is a talented and trained workforce.'"

And Governor Bullock feels that the Main Street Montana Project is a great way for the colleges and business, along with the state to continue on the road success.

Temperatures might be warmer, however the temperature of the water...
