Construction is on track to start in April, why wouldn’t Northern Pass be hiring now?

  • Published in Letters

To THe Daily Sun,

Honestly, Ms. Scribner’s concerns regarding the Job & Supplier Fairs sponsored by Northern Pass are a mystery to me (Daily Sun, Dec. 9). Consider this: With the potential to secure siting approval by New Hampshire regulators this winter, Northern Pass construction is on track to begin in April. It is certainly sensible that outreach begins now, in preparing for the 2,600 jobs that will be created or generated during the construction period.

The upcoming fairs offer suppliers and skilled workers the opportunity to meet with the team leading the construction of Northern Pass and are an important step toward following through on our commitment to hire New Hampshire workers first and to deliver economic benefits to host communities.

The first of two Job & Supplier Fairs will be held Wednesday, Dec. 13 from 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Mountain View Grand in Whitefield. The second will be held January 10 from 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Grappone Center in Concord.
