In this extremely informative episode from an organization that impacts all homeowners and business owners in Lincoln County, our guests from LEDA (Cliff Brumfield, Kara Brown, Rhonda Hunter, and John Dancoff) talk about their experience, why LEDA was first formed, and how (and why) LEDA operates/funded.
Our guests also talk about a few of the manufacturers in Lincoln County, some of the (well-known) products produced in Lincoln County, the importance of having both small and large businesses in Lincoln County, the relationships that are formed with these businesses (both at the onset of the business and as the business thrives), and apprenticeship programs.
In addition, other talking points include Workforce Development, the competitiveness of securing businesses to build/relocate to Lincoln County, maintaining, tax incentives to businesses, the working relationships that are formed with Small Businesses, the exceptional working relationships that are formed with Lincoln County Schools and Gaston College, and the (very important) reasons why the Lincoln County Community may not know about some of large companies/businesses that are considering Lincoln County as their headquarters.
