NC Treasurer Cowell Launches Second Day of Summit

Janet Cowell, NC state treasurer, kicked off the second day of the SJF Summit by reminding attendees that the Old North State is in a good place to tap into the emerging green economy.

“North Carolina’s a state that is well-positioned to take advantage of this movement,” Cowell said.

Cowell, a former SJF employee and state legislator who was elected as North Carolina’s first female treasurer last fall, praised SJF for organizing the Summit and convening a variety of leaders who want to collaborate to create good green jobs.

She called on Summit attendees to offer state government officials feedback to help get the economy flowing again.

“I hope that you can help the government sector identify the barriers and policies that need to be changed,” she said.
