NH Correctional Industries to Have Booth at “Made in NH Expo”

(Concord, NH) The New Hampshire Department of Corrections announces that New Hampshire Correctional Industries (NHCI) will have a booth at the 2009 Made in New Hampshire Try It and Buy It Expo. Now in its fourteenth year, this event highlights the state’s diversity with over one thousand products, ranging from the latest in high technology to fine craftsmanship. This is the fifth year NHCI has participated.

 

NHCI staff will be available during the weekend to answer questions about inmate-made products and to discuss job skills programs offered to offenders. Many opportunities exist for inmates to learn marketable trades such as information technology, printing, furniture construction and upholstery, woodworking, agriculture, and sign making. A few small items will be available for sale.

 

“This is an opportunity to educate and inform the public about Correctional Industries, particularly for those who cannot come inside the prison to see the shops for themselves,” Corrections Commissioner William L. Wrenn said.

 

Approximately 400 inmates participate in NHCI programs each year.

 

The expo will be held at the New Hampshire National Guard Armory in Manchester from Friday March 27-Sunday March 29, 2009.

AJS calls for Secretary Geithner to be replaced and for Senator Chris Dodd to step aside 

Washington, D.C.- Americans for Job Security will release two advertisements at 10:00 pm tonight highlighting Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Senator Christopher Dodd’s participation in the AIG bonus fiasco.

 

“Both Secretary Geithner and Senator Dodd went out of their way to create the AIG bonus loophole and it is increasingly clear they have the best interest of Wall Street financiers not the American taxpayers in mind,” said Stephen DeMaura President of Americans for Job Security.

 

Americans for Job Security is asking the American people to let their voice be heard and vote for which advertisement should be aired on cable nationally. People can vote at our website www.SaveJobs.org/VoteNow.php.Voting begins tonight and will be open until March 26th.

 

“AJS calls on President Obama to replace Secretary Geithner and joins members of Connecticut’s media in calling for Senator Christopher Dodd to step aside as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee” said Stephen DeMaura President of Americans for Job Security.

 

Americans for Job Security is an independent, pro-business issue advocacy organization established in 1997 in order to promote issues that strengthen the American economy. For more information on Americans for Job Security visit our website at www.SaveJobs.org.
