CLEVELAND -- Sen. Sherrod Brown was the keynote speaker at a manufacturing summit Monday.

The summit was hosted by the Bernard L. Schwartz Rediscovering Government Initiative at The Century Foundation, a progressive think tank.

Public officials, labor and small business leaders, and economic and workforce development experts shared success stories on regenerating growth across the region.

“We need to get more Ohioans interested in these jobs and we need to create more of them," Brown said, according to a news release. “And we need to make sure the manufacturing jobs we do have are good-paying jobs that provide opportunities to build careers.”
