Marengo County EDA needs to be formed

In exactly what form the Marengo County Economic Development Agency is not our greatest concern &8212; though certain aspects are absolutely necessary.

But instead of focusing on that, we want to take a minute to praise those leaders &8212; in the county, in Linden and in Demopolis &8212; who have worked to bring this effort to the point at which we currently find it.

Having a unified economic development board is an absolute must for us. The world is getting smaller, and the competition for good jobs is getting stronger.

Together, we have more to offer. We are excited about what happens next.
