February 2016 News

February is certainly off to a fast start...

This morning I was in Chicago with Governor Rauner as he was speaking to economic development professionals and others. Jim Schultz, Director of Illinois Department of Commerce was also on hand.

Yesterday, members of our Board of Directors and I attended the McHenry County Board Address by Chairman Gottemoller and were pleased that the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy we have been working on during 2015 was approved by the Board.

And Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending District 155’s GEMS (Girls in Engineering Math and Science) event for young women in 6 to 8th grades. Our future workforce is critical to our future success as a county to remain innovative, to retain and attract business. After talking to many young women and their parents the future looks extremely bright.
