The new group Green Jobs FOR the People held a conference call this morning to strategize how to help disadvantaged populations in Hillsborough County secure sustainability jobs through the economic stimulus bill.
Tampa City Council member Mary Mulhern, was on the call from out of town.
â€œI just agree that we could solve some of our biggest problems right now."
Mulhern says that using stimulus funding to create green jobs for people who need it the most will solve three important problems.
The Sunshine State would be a perfect place for green jobs â€“ like the manufacture of solar panels, according to Mulhern.
Another Green Jobs FOR the People member on the conference call is Rev. Warren Clark, with Faiths United for Sustainable Energy, who announced an event that Green Jobs FOR the People will participate in on Friday.
