01 - 17 - 2014 Annual JBI meeting features Corman as guest speaker
[LS] - The annual meeting of the Juniata Business and Industry Inc. was held at the Bread of Life Restaurant in McAlisterville yesterday. State Sen. Jake Corman was the keynote speaker at the event where he heaped praise on the efforts made by the group in attracting more business to the region. Corman told the crowd that he has always tried to take the economic approach to things, saying, "If you are doing well economically, it minimizes a lot of the social problems." Corman said the development made economically is just as vital as socially, if not more but the big money shouldn't be spent on the bureaucracy. He pointed out that, "When you are putting money into the bureaucracy you are not putting money in the local store down the street."
