When the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation lost almost half of its funding from the county and its executive director last year, many of its investors told its chairperson the same thing: do not give up. KCEDC chairperson and NEW Plastics co-owner Lonnie Vincent quoted author Mark Twain and reassured investors of its future during its annual meeting held earlier this week in Algoma. Vincent hopes a series of roundtable discussions with local CEOs and county government officials can help set the course for the KCEDC towards something great.
There is no timetable set for the meetings, but Vincent is hopeful the KCEDC will continue to connect area businesses to the tools they need to succeed.
