Wamp To Roll Out "Agenda Of Innovation"

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Third District Congressional candidate Weston Wamp said he plans to roll out an "agenda of innovation."

He said 12 leading Third District technology CEOs and innovators will appear with him Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the offices of Ambition, LLC., 800 Market St., second floor.

It will be streamed live online via Google Hangout.

Mr. Wamp said,“The federal government is inefficient, dysfunctional and now hostage to fraud. The politicians in Washington are too caught up in partisan bickering to look to the private sector for the

innovative solutions we need to attack the deficit and retrofit government for the 21st century.

"It’s time to deploy private sector innovation and solutions that can make government work. That’s the purpose for the “Agenda of Innovation.”

Jeff Averbeck, CEO, Airnet
Adam Boeselager, Co-Founder, Southtree
