Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Democratic Candidate for Governor, Jay Inslee was in Yakima Thursday.

People crowded into the Deccio Higher Education Center on the YVCC campus to hear his thoughts on job creation, the importance of higher education, and workforce training.

Inslee lived in Yakima for about 20 years and taught classes at YVCC.

He says the college is doing great things to get people back to work.

"The things that are happening here at YVCC are very exciting. From the aerospace training facility, to some of the new systems of providing outreach at Grandview and other learning centers," said Inslee.

Inslee says that locally, he'll work to get people back to work by continuing to provide skilled training programs, and helping grow the wine and tourism industry in the Valley.
