Jobs / Regional Cooperation
We need good, secure jobs for people in our area. Things are looking up with the battery plant and Hemlock Semi-Conductor but more must be done to draw solid visionary companies to the Tri-County area. We need more regional cooperation amongst the tri-counties, not just with businesses but also with governments. Groups like the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance are making a great start in business cooperation. They are dedicated to economic development for the whole Saginaw Valley. So how can our local governments work together on a regional level? How can we invest in our lakes, riversides, and historic districts to draw tourists to our area and make it a vacation mecca? We need to help raise up everyone and not let anyone fail. We are ALL in this together, all of us in the Saginaw Valley. So how can we better work together, using our precious resources as wisely as possible?
