Our regional economy was dominated for decades by the jobs and revenue generated by the paper mills. With the loss of this industry, we now must develop the infrastructure and local markets to attract new employers to our area. We need to attract employers who bring a variety of employment opportunities to the area, so we are not dependent on the rise and fall of a particular industry or job sector. We also want employers who offer good paying, year round jobs, with benefits, so we can attract and retain our graduates and families in the area.
