Ads focus on Richmond’s leadership on jobs, education

WASHINGTON (Aug. 12, 2016) – In a combined effort to showcase the positive work of Members of Congress, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and North America’s Building Trades Unions will run issue advertisements for Congressman Cedric Richmond (D-La.-02). The ads highlight Rep. Richmond’s leadership on issues that will help foster a bright future for Louisiana.

“Louisiana is the second largest chemistry-producing state, and Louisiana chemistry directly employs 10,600 residents in District 2 alone,” explained ACC President and CEO Cal Dooley. “Congressman Richmond understands the importance of a strong chemistry manufacturing sector to Louisiana by supporting policies that build a strong workforce through quality education and skills training. As representatives one of the nation’s largest manufacturing sectors, we want to acknowledge Rep. Richmond’s hard work and bipartisan leadership on key issues that help our economy thrive.”

The ads for Rep. Richmond will run for three weeks throughout District 2 of Louisiana, including New Orleans and Baton Rouge, and will encourage constituents to contact the office of the Congressman to tell him to keep up the good work.
