Deal is expected to speak regarding the effect good environmental stewardship has on the economy.
“We don’t always think in terms of the environment’s impact on our local economy,” Connie Wiggins, Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful, explained in a released statement. “We may consider its effect on our health or the beauty of our surroundings, but it truly is a much larger issue than that. If we all work together as a community of good environmental stewards by focusing on water and air quality, the importance of recycling to diminish the size of our landfills, sustainable green practices at home and work, and the creation of green jobs, our combined efforts will not only have a very positive impact on the local area, but also on its economy. I – for one – am very excited to hear Governor Deal’s speech. He is a wonderful advocate of environmentalism.”
