  1. I wish to endorse the vision of Skills2Compete MA! A skilled workforce is crucial to our state’s productivity and competitiveness. Every MA resident should have access to at least two years of education or training past high school so they have the vocational credential, industry certification, or Associates Degree needed to succes in today’s economy. Residents hsould also have access to the basic skills, support, and financial aid needed to pursue such education.
