Comments Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The IBM-Global Foundries Announcement

 "Vermont has always had a special relationship with IBM.  While this marks a new chapter for the plant, I appreciate that Global Foundries recognizes that the most valuable asset they are acquiring is the talented workforce in Essex.  These are some of the most highly skilled workers in the entire nation, and I remain committed to working with them and the new ownership to keep an active and vibrant plant as part of Vermont’s economic landscape."
