As I was growing up, I learned that you should “hope for the best and at the same time prepare for the worst”. This conservative philosophy has served me well over the years and is currently benefiting Gibson City especially with the uncertainties we face every day as a country, as a state and as a community. Acting on this belief will benefit us in good as well as in bad times and will position us for future growth and prosperity when our economy turns the corner.
We are not an island, what happens outside our community does affect us. To put things into perspective I have decided to lead with my thoughts and analysis concerning government at all levels as it has a direct impact on our community and local economy.
