Groves shares vision

Staff writer

A countywide vision that sets aside high school football rivalries and looks to a global economy are goals of Marion County’s economic developers.

Russell Groves, representing Marion County Community Economic Development Corporation, spoke with Marion Kiwanis Club members at their Tuesday meeting.

“Marion County has the opportunity to brighten our future prospects,” he said. “We need new enterprises. We need new jobs. We need more residents to fill those jobs and start those enterprises.

“All of those goals can be more effectively achieved when we view our county as one economic entity. Leave the inter-city rivalries on the football field, please. The free market will reward us for cooperating with each other.”
