“To be a successful economic development council we must focus on improving the skills of the area's workforce, push for reducing the cost of doing business in our area and make available the resources all businesses need to compete and thrive especially in today’s global climate. I believe the Grant County EDC has the vision and the know all to do this. This is why I’m happy to support and serve on the Grant County EDC’s board.”
