At a press conference, Sewell said she was pleased with the high volume of people seeking employment during the four-hour event.
“My expectation was that people in need of a better opportunity would come to the job fair,:” Sewell said.
“People want good paying jobs and workers want good people. It takes education and a employment opportunity.”
