TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly announced today that since she took office in January 2019, her administration has successfully collaborated with private sector businesses to create and retain more than 60,000 jobs in Kansas. This milestone continues the record-breaking economic development success the state has experienced under the Kelly administration.
“60,000 jobs represent 60,000 opportunities for Kansans in every corner of the state to provide better futures for themselves and their families,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “These job numbers are a testament to the work my administration has done to invest in the building blocks of our state’s economy: our public schools, strong roads and bridges, high-speed internet, and a modern workforce.”
This milestone represents more than $16.7 billion in private-sector investment comprising more than 940 announced projects that include both international corporations placing operations in the Sunflower State and Kansas companies choosing to expand right here at home.
