Statement of TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore on “Historic” Election
Washington — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, issued the following statement on the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States. The following can be attributed to Linda Moore, president and CEO of TechNet.
“I congratulate President-elect Donald J. Trump on his historic victory, as well as all those who participated in this hard-fought election – Republicans and Democrats alike – for putting everything on the line to serve our nation.
With the election behind us, we must now turn to the hard work of governing and addressing the very real challenges and opportunities facing our nation.
At TechNet, we believe that there is an opportunity to jump-start the economy, ensure that Americans have the skills necessary to thrive, and create a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship, and growth across the nation.
Over the course of the transition and into the new year – at the federal, state, and local levels – we will work with policymakers to advance the issues most important to spurring innovation: tax reform, computer science education, high-skilled immigration reform, building a culture that supports startups, and addressing the future of work.
We hope that policymakers will work in a bipartisan manner to create more opportunities for more Americans. The innovation industry stands ready to engage with the new Administration, the 115th Congress, governors, and state and local officials to do just that.”
