There is nothing more important to the economic success of a region or county than having elected officials that “get it”. Boone County, Indiana, is very blessed to have these extraordinary leaders in elected and appointed office, and this leadership is just one of the reasons Boone County has strengthened its economic position in the state of Indiana during this tough and elongated economic downturn.
I would like to thank all of our office holders for understanding that now is the time to give 150% to the economic development effort. I want to thank you all for your willingness to listen and learn from economic development professionals and your ability to make the changes necessary to ensure economic success in Boone County. Your innovative decision making has created a business friendly atmosphere and made it very easy to market this county to the rest of the world as a place to realize business success!
