Hickman County Earns Photo Op With Governor Bredesen

According to Daryl Phillips, the director of the Hickman County Economic & Community Development Association, Hickman County once again earned the three-star certification from the state. This certification is given to communities that meet certain criteria that the state deems necessary for economic growth. According to Matthew Kisber the "ECD is proud to support Hickman County in its dedication to long-term economic growth and success.”

This is great! However, for several years in a row, Hickman County has received this certification and I have not seen very many changes that have been brought about because of meeting this criteria. While surrounding counties seem to grow without limits, we have changed very little in the last 20 years and very little because of meeting state criteria. But, at least Mr. Phillips had the opportunity to have his photo taken with the Governor.
