Jay Inslee, the Democratic candidate for governor, meets executives and workers in Kent and Renton next week – part of his jobs tour with area companies that demonstrate the economic and job potential in Washington's clean tech industry.
On Tuesday, Inslee visits World CNG, a Kent-based company and leader in alternative fuel vehicle conversions from conventional gasoline to compressed natural gas.
Inslee's appearance is scheduled from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m., at World CNG, 20620 84th Ave. S., Kent.
On Wednesday, Inslee visits Shuttle Express, which worked with World CNG to convert a large portion of its fleet and built a natural gas-fueling station with the support of the Obama Administration's Recovery Act Grant award.
Inslee's visit to Shuttle Express, 800 SW 16th St., Renton, is from 10-11 a.m.
