RICHMOND – According to CNBC, Virginia is the Top State to Do Business in 2019, after six consecutive years of Democratic leadership in the Governor’s office. CNBC weights workforce as its top criterion and also considers factors like cost of living, quality of life, and inclusivity.
“The CNBC ranking reflects Democrats’ commitment and effort to invest in the economic engine of this Commonwealth: the workforce,” said House Democratic Leader Eileen Filler-Corn. “Elevating hard-working Virginians with access to quality education, healthcare, and housing is simply good for business.”
The House Democratic Caucus recently named Delegate David Reid (D-Loudoun) as its Business Liaison. Delegate Reid is decorated Navy veteran and business professional who brings over 30 years of experience in strategic management, banking, global telecommunications, and the defense industry to the House of Delegates.
