Bring in the jobs, Gov. McDonnell!
Cheers go to Gov. Bob McDonnell and his entourage for promoting Virginia's wine, agriculture and tourism industries during a nine-day visit to England, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany.
The governor also met with auto industry, pharmaceutical and firearms industry leaders during his trip, which was made to encourage international investment and job creation in the state.
Last week, McDonnell announced a $10.6 million expansion at Berryville Graphics in Clarke County after meeting with its parent company in Germany. Visits abroad that yield more business and more jobs like this in our state are definitely worth the cost of the trip.
