Yes

Yes. I believe the Chicago City Colleges have a special role to play here and will look to develop an ongoing partnership around this issue.

Miguel del Valle IVI-IPO 2011 Chicago Mayoral

Yes Workforce development is one of my highest priorities. I will invest in training and education to prepare a 21st Century workforce, taking advantage of niche opportunities in high growth
industries such as the allied health industries, transportation, and high-tech manufacturing. I believe that all of Chicago’s residents should have the opportunity to participate in this economy and have access to jobs that pay a living wage and have growth potential. Employment and education are key to healthy households and healthy communities, and will also save us money in public safety in the long run.
