Why does he believe the Chamber is important to Huntington County?

“Being involved with the Chamber has taught me the importance of shopping locally and keeping our dollars spent on goods and services in Huntington. Shopping locally maintains the character and marketplace diversity of our community and creates local jobs. If we can get business leaders to know each other and build relationships, the money has a greater chance of staying in Huntington. I believe that the Chamber-sponsored events such as the Breakfast Showcase, After Hours, 12@12 and the Business EXPO will help develop these relationships. The Chamber is in excellent position to educate our business leaders and community about the importance and strong economic benefits of buying locally.”
