Washington Fly-In

I’ve been in Washington DC much of this week with several community leaders. Our goal has been to make sure that our legislators know what is important to Champaign County.

If our legislators know what we need then they can focus the limited dollars available toward the things that improve the livability and infrastructure in our community. That obviously leads to an improved business climate which helps the bank grow and prosper for our shareholders.

I was asked by the News Gazette to write a blog about the trip so that people interested in economic development could keep track of our efforts.

I’ll be back to the regular investment posts when I return home.

Until then,
