Former Virginia Governor and U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine touched on talent and other changes he believes will spark the national economy during a Tuesday afternoon tour of Fibertek, a company that specializes in lasers and electro-optical systems for military and aerospace use.
In a town hall meeting with employees Tuesday afternoon, he told the crowd he had both good and bad news about the economy.
The good: When Kaine was born, Virginia was in 32nd place in per capita income, and the state is now ranked seventh nationally.
