During a news conference in Auburn this morning, U.S. Senator Susan Collins applauded TD Banknorth’s decision to expand its operations, creating up to 500 new jobs.
“It is just remarkable that in the midst of the worst economic climate since the Great Depression, when hundreds of thousands of jobs are being lost every month all around the country, we are here to celebrate the expansion of TD Banknorth’s operations in Auburn,” said Senator Collins. “What a testament to the skill and foresight of the TD Banknorth team that you have weathered the storm so well.”
“I met with TD Banknorth management last year and we discussed the company’s plans for the future and the importance of having top-quality workers to support its growth. I am delighted that TD Banknorth has made the decision to expand in Auburn – this is a great choice for Maine, and a great choice for your company.
“Congratulations to everyone who helped make this day happen.”
