How do you grow jobs and the economy while staying attuned to environmental concerns? That was one of the questions posed by Gov. Nathan Deal during the Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful March 6 Environmental Address at the Gwinnett Convention Center in Duluth.
“If you want jobs to come your way – whether opening a new business or relocating a business – know that they want to be in a county and community that is clean and values its beauty," Deal said according to a press release from Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful.
Connie Wiggins, Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful, thanked Gov. Deal for his commitment to the environment.
“We were so very honored to have Governor Nathan Deal join us for this year’s Environmental Address,” explained Wiggins. “Throughout his tenure, he has been protecting Georgia’s environment for both its ecological and economic worth. He understands that the state’s natural resources help support agriculture, tourism, jobs, and businesses alike. By working together as a community of good environmental stewards, our combined efforts will have a positive impact on the local area and its economy – whether here in Gwinnett or beyond our county borders.”
