To the St. Clair County Commisisoners;
I want to thank commissioner Salomon for attending the County Economic Development meeting that was held on May 22 in Osceola MO. This was the seventh meeting that has been held to develop a board that will work toward economic growth and eventually more employment opportunities here in our county. It is important that the members of each area of our county are included, as well as our County Commissioners. Working together, this board will help us bring needed jobs into our area. With the Kaysinger Basin group guiding us and giving us contacts and information, I feel that this is the time that we must move forward and work together to bring St. Clair County into a place where our children can stay here and work, rather than move away to find employment.
We are encouraged with your willingness to be part of this effort. Without the cooperation of our members, as well as community members, this would be impossible. This will be al slow process, but with everyone’s input I have confidence that good things will happen for our county.
Again, thank you for your support of this issue. Your attendance to these meetings is crucial to the success of this effort. The meetings are held on the third Monday of each month, with the next one being on June 18 at noon. I will keep you informed about the location, I look forward to your continued support and your participation of this organization.
