|Mayo: Alliance has support|
Members of the Northeast Louisiana Economic Alliance Region gathered in Monroe Tuesday to reaffirm their commitment to bring more development to the area.
The group was established as one of the eight defined regions in the state working with the Louisiana Economic Development Corp. to spur economic development.
Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo said the northeastern Louisiana region has experienced exciting economic development news over the past several months.
"The Monroe metropolitan area, over the next two years, will experience the highest percent in terms of the number of jobs in the entire state," Mayo said. "I'm very excited about this, and it's been because of leadership, determination, commitment and teamwork. We've been working together in a huge way to make all of this possible."
Mayo said people can look at what's happened in Union Parish with the inclusion of Foster Farms or at Richland Parish with the addition of ConAgra as examples of positive economic development.
He also said people could look at the growth in Sterlington and the positive economic development activities in the city of Monroe as examples of the teamwork.
"The synergy you see out there is second to none, and we're very excited about what's going on in this entire region," Mayo said. "We look forward to achieving great things with this strong group of partners. Monroe is the hub of the northeast Louisiana region and we pledge our continued support to the parishes that surround us and participate in promoting our region."
Mayo said Tana Trichel, executive director of the alliance, has done "an outstanding job, and we look forward to our continued strong relationship with her and the board."
While there has been strong economic development activity in the region over the past several months, Trichel believes more success lies ahead for northeast Louisiana.
"Our task lies ahead of us," she said. "We've had a lot of successes, but I don't think we're nearly through. We have some things in the hopper. As we all know, economic development can be secretive, and we feel like we're pretty good at holding it in until it's time to announce it. We've demonstrated success and we're going to keep moving forward."
