Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce president, Sue Dick says the chamber and Governor Scott have a lot in common when it comes to job creation.

Scott's plan calls for 700,000 jobs in seven years, which is music to the ears of chambers all across the state.

Tallahassee's chamber has started an initiative called "let's work together" when Scott was elected, going as far as to hand deliver information packets to all legislative offices promote the businesses and services available locally.

Sue Dick says, "Through the economic development council we have our targeted industry sectors and we're working with the governor's office on several project and we're trying to position ourselves to close on some of these contracts and on some of these projects that will create jobs for our community."

She also says a lot of smaller business in the area are looking to expand in 2011 either in adding square footage to a building or adding on employees- she says both are a bonus to the local economy.
