The Allegany County Board of Commissioners, last week, was presented with a new economic development strategic plan laying out a path to future success.

    Our elected officials really need to get together and determine just what is going on around here. Administrator Brandon Butler talks about the wonderful jobs available to everyone here in the area and yet, to hear Delegate Mike McKay speak (as he did in the sound byte just above) this area needs good jobs. He didn’t say that we need MORE good jobs he said we need good jobs.
