WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after Monogram Food Solutions, a manufacturer of quality meat snacks, announced it will create over 100 new jobs in Henry County:
"At a time when unemployment in Southside remains all too high, I am pleased that Monogram is, once again, adding much-needed jobs in our area. Their decision to again expand investment in their Henry County operations is a testament to the hardworking people of Martinsville and Henry County. I thank the company, Governor McAuliffe, state and local lawmakers, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission, and the Martinsville - Henry County Economic Development Corporation for their commitment to economic development. I look forward to continuing to work with state and local leaders and advancing policies that will spur economic growth and get Virginia's Fifth District back to work."
