Economy

Ideas were bouncing off the walls at the meeting of the Partnership for Economic Development Tuesday night at the Slate Valley Museum. The meeting hosted by partnership head Brian LaRose brought is area business and civic leaders with a single purpose in mind: How do we help Granville help itself through the hard economic times the country is experiencing?

Assemblyman Roy McDonald addressed the group and had some good advice for those gathered. Todd from the Adirondack Regional Chamber ran the group through a little exercise to get people thinking about what makes Granville special and what can be done to help others figure out what we know. Good stuff, lots of creative sparks flying. More to follow in the paper this week, Aug. 6 issue.

 

 

Looking…

 

For places that make Granville special, one of the focuses of the brainstorming session from Tuesday night. Any thoughts? If you’re reading this you can comment, just click to register. It’s probably going to be the question of the week this time around and something that will be an occasional subject addressed the the paper.

 

Another subject I want to continue to address is petroleum. Whether it’s gas prices, heating oil or the rising cost of anything beacuse of the rising costs of fuel; drop me a line at sentinelreporter@manchesternewspapers.com it doesn’t have to mean you’re going to be the quote of the week, but I’d like to hear your stories and I’m sure other people would too.

 

more later?
