Morning Conversation with U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown

sherrod brownGCP Members are invited to join us for a Morning Conversation with U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown. Described as “Congress’ leading proponent of American manufacturing,” Brown supports a national manufacturing policy that would invest in manufacturing innovation, strengthen our component supply chain, connect workers with emerging industries, and align our trade policies to promote our national interests.

Brown is also the first Ohio Senator in 40 years to serve on the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee, where he has been instrumental in strengthening the farm safety net and addressing childhood hunger. Senator Brown has fought for our veterans, servicemembers, and their families throughout his career. From his position on the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, Brown has advocated for veterans training programs to ensure returning servicemembers have access to good-paying, high-demand jobs.

Prior to serving in the United States Senate, Brown served as a United States Representative for the 13th District, Ohio’s Secretary of State, a member of the Ohio General Assembly, and has taught in Ohio’s public schools and at The Ohio State University.

4Q Middle Market Forum: Opportunity Zones - Redefining Cleveland

Sales of development sites in Opportunity Zones nationwide have spiked 80% in the first three quarters of 2018, compared with the same period last year, according to data firm Real Capital Analytics. 

Opportunity Zones are a new community development program established in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. The goal of the Opportunity Zone program is to allow investors to defer capital gains from the sale or exchange of property by investing the proceeds in an Opportunity Fund. The fund would then invest these assets in businesses within an Opportunity Zone.
