President’s Report – April 28, 2017

It's Time to Say YES!!!

For the first time in 4 weeks, it is time to say....YES!!!!!  It has been hard to write this piece for nearly a month and not be able to share how close we were to being a part of something special for this region.  This has been the single most important week in my life for me and my staff.

Braidy Industries is the real deal.  This company will not only bring a  huge investment and great jobs but, it will help us bring additional companies and opportunities.   It is wonderful news for our members and the region.

I have to take this opportunity to say thank you to many people.  Partners such as Kentucky Power, Woodlands Foundation, and the Greenup County Judge-Executive Office all went the extra mile to make this happen.   My staff had to put up with me.  My wife has not had one interrupted meal in over a month.  Finally, thanks to you, the Alliance members for keeping the faith and supporting our efforts in supporting all business in the region along with finding a few new friends to locate here.

Today's piece is a little bit shorter than usually.  We have already started work on what is next all along supporting you and Braidy Industries.  I think the paper got it right.  This is a new day and brighter future for this region.   You were part of it.

Thank you.   Let's build a new future here in Northeast Kentucky!
