Ride to Prosperity in Reading and Berks County

Yesterday, I participated in a press conference timed to the release of “Ride to Prosperity:  Strategies for Economic Competitiveness in Greater Reading.” This report is the culmination of an interesting initiative where eight local economic and workforce development groups have come together to jointly develop and promote a series of new economic development strategies for Berks County and the City of Reading, PA.  More communities need to engage in this kind of collaborative planning and decision making. 

The report has garnered a good deal of local media attention.  Some links are here:
