A very brief note this morning to think of our friends on the east coast who suffered a natural disaster last week that will require great leadership and effort in economic development to rebuild and heal their communities. The Columbus Region has many personal and economic ties to that region of the country.
Whole communities must be rebuilt from homes and streets as well as the energy infrastructure required for businesses and daily life. Our thoughts are with those economic developers that will lead these efforts to get people and companies up and running again.
