State Representative Carl Gilliard holding economic empowerment summit in Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Georgia State Representative Carl Gilliard stopped by WTOC Monday to tell us about his upcoming Economic Empowerment Summit.

He holds summits like this one each year. He brings resources to our community to offer help with career development and other opportunities.

This year, Rep. Gilliard has resources available to expunge records that may be stopping your career, help for starting a business, and college financial aid and enrollment.

“Failure is not an option. For instance, we’re going to promote careers, but we might have people who might not have a resume, so when you come there, we’re going to get you a resume through the Department of Labor on the spot," he said.

The summit will be held this Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Savannah Technical College.
