Daines meets with Trapper Creek Job Corps employees

DARBY – Republican Sen. Steve Daines heard from Trapper Creek Job Corps employees about the president keeping the program open in Darby on Friday.

“I was just a kid growing up in Montana like many of you have done and are doing,” Daines said at the event. “And it was an honor for me to take your message, your results, the work you do. I’m just a conduit to present that to the president and the secretary.”

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Anaconda and Trapper Creek Job Corps Conservation Centers will remain open under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s management.

The Anaconda Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is one of nine nationwide slated for closure starting in September.

The other 16 centers, including Trapper Creek outside Darby, are to be transferred to private contractors.
