Tally – Tulsa
— The Tulsa World
Tulsa’s Future, a program that aims to bring high-paying jobs and capital investment to the region, experienced a near-record number of 907 primary jobs being announced in January. “We absolutely did start off 2013 in a terrific manner,” stated Stuart Soloman, chair of the Tulsa’s Future oversight committee. According to the Tulsa Regional Chamber, the goal of the program program is to create 10,000 primary jobs at an annual salary of $50,000 or greater over a period from 2011 to 2015, and to generate capital investment of $1 billion. Those 10,000 primary jobs would ultimately help create 16,000 additional jobs. Tulsa’s Future is made up of 140 public and private partners and includes nearly 30 organizations that represent local communities.
