President Elect’s agenda may mean many more jobs for region.

With election season finally over and most things decided, we can now focus on what the candidates laid out as their plans for a “re-birth” in America.

 

One term you kept hearing during the campaign was “infrastructure.”  Another couple words were “alternative fuel” and “technology based jobs” to research and discover that alternative fuel.  I mention this because we are hearing about and seeing this region shift in its economic capacity.  We are shifting from the “rust belt” to the “tech belt.”  

 

So I go back to the candidates and what they promised.  If this country has a strong push toward technology over the next ten years and our region can get a jump start on bidding for that federal tax money, that can only mean good things for our city and our state.  It is time for our region to lead.  This will mean more jobs, population growth and overall gains in real-estate value.
