Shelby visits Sikorsky, says he’ll make job creation a priority
U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., toured Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. Friday morning. The visit was part of his county tour.
Since 1987, Shelby’s first term in the U.S. Senate, he has made more than 1,800 county visits in Alabama, according to a press release issued by Shelby. Sikorsky, his only stop in Troy, marked the 1,836th county visit of his career.
This tour focused on top employers in the state. Shelby planned to visit one in every county. He said job creation must be a priority in this country and it was critical that he hear firsthand from those who were creating the jobs how policy was affecting them and what he could do to help foster their success.
