Putting Pen to Paper for Change

An Update on Hillsboro:

The local delegation that traveled to Hillsboro recently met to begin the process of developing a formal plan. The plan is designed to share the knowledge and understanding gained on this trip with the 120,000 other people in Warren and Washington Counties who have just as great a stake in our region's ability to prepare for and benefit from the future arrival of businesses such as AMD.
