A U.S. Senator kicks off a 10 day statewide tour in Yakima tonight.

Senator Maria Cantwell spoke to local supporters at the Yakima County Democrat's Office as part of her "Jobs for Washington Tour."

Cantwell's topics included job growth, expanding educational opportunities and investing in workforce and veterans job training.

Senator Cantwell says one issue the Yakima Valley needs to address is bringing more jobs to the aerospace program.

"We want to make sure we remain the hub of aerospace, and we want aviation jobs right here in Yakima. Like GE Aviation, and we want to train more people to do those jobs."

Senator Cantwell will be at the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Union in Pasco tomorrow at 10 am.
