Fact or fiction?
It's true that Allen's helped lure the highest dollar figure in new investment in state history.
That's partly due to how much more work is being done by expensive machines than by people.
But in this case, the Governor's counting his chickens before they're hatched.

The administration news releases call 1995 and 1996 the second and third strongest years ever for job creation.
Now we're back to the projected numbers.
Because if you go back to the Virginia employment Commission for ACTUAL job growth, take a look at the mid- 1980's, under then- Governors Chuck Robb and Jerry Baliles.
Virginia hit an all-time high in 1984 with 126- thousand new jobs created in one year.
Compare that to the mid-90's, with Virginia hitting its decade peak in 1994, with just 85- thousand new jobs... right after Governor Allen took office.
Actual job growth has declined during Allen's term.

((THE LAST HALF OF THE 80s WERE PROBABLY THE MOST RAPID GROWTH PERIOD IN THE HISTORY OF THE COMMONWEALTH IN TERMS OF NEW INVESTMENT AND JOB CREATION.))

So yes Virginia, George Allen's bringing home more jobs than some of your neighbor states in a healthy national economy.
