Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers’
Response to Boeing 787 Decision
October 1, 2020
“Our top concern is with the families, workers, suppliers, and businesses this decision impacts. COVID-19 has pushed our economy into unwelcome and uncharted territory, and this is another result of the global pandemic. But we are resilient. We have survived tough times before, and we will get through this. We also know that Boeing has made long-term investments in Everett, and we will continue to support the important work that continues. Over the last few years, we have been aggressively strengthening our training programs to make sure we have the gold standard workforce development system. Snohomish County will continue to diversify our economy, support our job creators, and attract new businesses, including future investments from Boeing.”
