Terry McAuliffe on Corporations

Democratic nominee for Governor; previously DNC Chair


Made 267 economic development deals, with $5.58B in capital

We built on our Commonwealth's world-class business environment helping more Virginia businesses expand, and bringing new companies here to grow and create jobs. Those efforts are paying off. In the year that we have been working together, I am proud to announce that Virginia has closed 267 economic development deals, resulting in $5.58 billion in capital investment--more than TWICE what any administration has done in its first year.

I was proud to help close the first economic development deal in Appomattox in 12 years, and their largest in 44 years, a Chinese company that will take over a closed plant and manufacture pollution control devices that they will then ship back to China, creating 349 Virginia jobs in the process.

Started McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance at age 14

There were certain obstacles to starting a business at age 14. Then I saw a guy in front of his house sealing his driveway. He was all sweaty and irritated-looking, putting down a layer of hot tar emulsion liquid, which is dirty, nasty work. I said out loud, "They'll hire a kid to do that."

I hurried home and typed up a letter announcing my new McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance business to all of our neighbors. The next morning I handed those out all over the neighborhood, and by the end of the first day I had 6 jobs.

"McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance," my mother would say every time she answered our phone, like she was in an office.

I took some of the money I made with McAuliffe Driveway Maintenance and invested in a snowblower and started my winter business. I would get up at 4:00 in the morning during the darkest coldest days of winter and blow snow off driveways and sidewalks.
