The partnership is a collection of professionals who comprise the economic development delivery system in the county. It focuses on providing assistance to the businesses in all stages of development and growth.

“We have a good group in the JCDC,” Commissioner Jack Matson said. It’s a great collaborative effort between Brad (Lashinsky), Bill (Setree) and Sue (Bowlby).”

Lashinsky said it had been 20 years since a central Pa. development council had been named Partner of the Year.
