Franken using Alexandria as model for filling U.S. worker 'skills gap'
U.S. Senator Al Franken was in Alexandria Wednesday to talk about legislation that will promote partnerships between businesses and community colleges to address a "skills gap" in the country.

"I brag about Alexandria all the time and use you as an example of what a partnership between industry and a community college can do in terms of jobs and economic development," Franken said.
