I am pleased to be one of five Jefferson County representitives on Governor Cuomo's North Country Regional Economic Development Council named today in Potsdam.
Jim Wright of DANC, Carl McLaughlin of the FDRLO, Timeless Frames owner Lisa Weber and Jefferson County Legislature Chair Carolyn Fitzpatrick are also on the body.
In the coming weeks representitives from ten regions across the state will meet to devise a jobs strategy for their region. The plan will be used in competing for economic development dollars from Albany.
Just as important is the sessions will create some synergy among people across the usual geo-political boundaries.
Given the importance of jobs and education to the North Country I am pleased and honored to represent our area in this process.
Only two mayors were chosen as members with Plattsburgh the other city.
