Jobs With Good Salary and Benefits

Jobs, mom and pops and corporate, are vital to OUR county. I will ensure the county is attractive, inviting, and on financially sound footing to show case our resources, historical attractions, and work force to new residential and commercial prospects.

Working with the Macon County Economic Development Board, business community, and stakeholders are vital to advancing ourselves.

A job market dominated with service jobs is not self-sustaining for increased socioeconomics. Macon County must reverse the projection of losing hundreds of citizens per year to attract more of our youth, TU professors, business owners, and professionals to live and shop with us in Macon County.

We must all work together to find and attract businesses to our county, it’s a community thing!

The county must pull itself from OUR rut we have been digging since the 80's. Only different thinking and determination will reverse the digging.

Something to ponder. What would you think of a citizen/business committee each year selecting a graduating high school student for a scholarship to Tuskegee University with a contract to bring their business vision to fruition to Macon County after graduation? Has anyone sat down with the Board of Trustees asking for such a partnership? I will.

We must do a better job with our job market!
