Why do you live in the Columbus Region?
Columbus has much of what bigger cities have to offer, without the hassles. You don’t have to plan half a day around getting to the airport, wait up all night in line or online for event tickets, or live in a garage and use a compost bucket as a toilet.
Why do you work in economic development?
Business, work and money are only means to an end – that end being self-sufficiency, prosperity, comfort and happiness for people and community. Economic development is the link between business (for us, the what) and community (the why).
