ANDERSON, Ind. —
“I run a food pantry and, with the unemployment and food stamp cuts, we need jobs,” he said. “Something to keep the youth in town.”
Sveum said more than 400 families seek assistance at Helping Hands each month and new jobs would help create hope in the community.
“It will also keep people from traveling out of the county for jobs,” he said.
Randy O’Brien, 48, of Pendleton said he wants the county to have job opportunities that are balanced.
“I have a business degree and I can’t get anything,” he said. “They say I’m overqualified. How can anyone be overqualified for a job?”
