Rob Sobhani: Find private sector funding for Maryland job initiatives

As a first step, I've pledged to find private sector funding for five initiatives I KNOW will get Maryland's economy moving forward and create NEW JOBS. My transportation plan will create 105,000 jobs; my export initiative will create 5,000 jobs; and our internship plan will create 15,000 opportunities for disadvantaged high school Seniors in Maryland.

Martin O`Malley: We have driven unemployment down to a three-year low

Because of wise and balanced decisions about where to cut, and smart decisions about where to invest, Maryland's businesses are creating jobs again. Last year, Maryland businesses created more new jobs than we have in any year since this recession hit, and we have driven unemployment down to a three-year low.

Martin O`Malley: Recovery & Reinvestment Act creates jobs; spend more locally

It all comes back to jobs. Building a more reliable power grid creates jobs. Rebuilding roads and renovating schools creates jobs. Building and restoring bridges creates jobs. Rebuilding water infrastructure and revitalizing community colleges creates jobs. Building science labs creates jobs. The Recovery & Reinvestment Act--signed courageously by President Obama and implemented openly and transparently without the waste, fraud and abuse that the naysayers predicted--has helped us create and save more than 15,000 jobs in the most recent quarter. And through our Capital Budget we can help create and retain 15,000 more. This includes jobs building and refurbishing schools, with the $250 million investment we're once again proposing for school construction.
