Warren County Leaders Give Economic Forecast

Lucas Willard

Public officials and members of the business community from Saratoga, Washington, and Warren counties gathered in Queensbury to get an economic forecast for the region.

At the annual breakfast hosted by EDC Warren County Friday a panel of business leaders discussed the challenges they faced in 2014 and their outlooks for the new year.

Although the economy is improving locally and nationally, the panelists talked about how their industries must become more collaborative and flexible.

“The idea is this: that if K-12, higher education, and business are all working together, we can create the kind of economic vitality in our community much better.”

The Glens Falls Post Star newspaper, Glens Falls National and Saratoga National banks, and medical device company AngioDynamics were also represented on the panel.
