Economic development co-chairs deliver positive message
The state co-chairs of the Capital Region Economic Development Council sent out an upbeat email this morning.
Co-Chairs James Barba, president & CEO of Albany Medical Center, and Robert J. Jones, president of the University at Albany, wrote that the Capital Region council is continuing its work with rekindled energy and momentum.
A copy of the letter is available below.
"Over the past two years, with input from the CREDC, $113 million has been awarded to support more than 170 economic development and infrastructure improvement projects in our region," they wrote. "When the funding is fully implemented, these projects will create and retain thousands of jobs. These are truly worthy investments that are strengthening our innovation economy, creating jobs of the future and positioning us for future growth."
"We all want to see our region – and our state – reach its full economic potential, and this is a budget that will help us get there. We look forward to keeping you up-to-date on the activities and progress of the CREDC, and encourage you to weigh in and add your voice and ideas to Tech Valley advancing," they conclude.
The next meeting of the council is April 25 at the Schenectady County Community College.
