PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) issues the following statement on President Obama's Competitiveness Council appointments:
"President Obama continues to build a winning team for his jobs agenda team. His latest appointments to the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, especially those with local, regional and state connections, forge the vital link between business and labor. In particular, I welcome the quality appointments of Brian L. Roberts, CEO of Philadelphia-based Comcast Corp., and Richard L. Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, along with Ellen Kullman, CEO of DuPont Co., based in Wilmington, Delaware. The Competitiveness Council will help maintain the momentum that has produced a net increase of one million jobs over the past year - proof positive that Obama's economic policies are working."
