New York Senator Charles Schumer headed to Chenango County today.
He took part in an Economic Roundtable to ensure local employers get the most out of programs coming out of Washington, DC.
The discussion was focused on future economic development plans.
The question was whether Chenango County could be an economic hot-spot?
Senator Schumer says it is heartbreaking that companies are hiring but cannot find people who are trained for their work, while others are looking for work. He says he is responsible for finding the right people in the federal government to help the local economy.
