Congressman Dave Loebsack was in Knoxville Tuesday. The Democrat and his staff visited with Weiler owner Pat Weiler, Knoxville mayor Don Zoutte, and Knoxville City Manager Harold Stewart before taking a tour of the plant. Their discussion included talk about complicated regulations and the need to change attitudes about industry and manufacturing at young ages. Loebsack told KNIA/KRLS News afterward that he thinks Weiler is an incredible success story, and it’s important to work with area education to ensure they are training the workforce for the kinds of jobs available in their local economy.
