NEWPORT-Cocke County Mayor Vaughn Moore and Parrottsville
Mayor Mary Keller, along with Cocke County Finance Director Anne Bryant-Hurst
and members of the CLB, Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Commission,
Tourism Council, and local media representatives, benefited tremendously from
Cocke County Partnership's Economic Forum held Tuesday at the Community Center.
The forum was organized by Cocke County Partnership
President Don Hurst and his staff to bring together representatives of various
agencies, ranging from Tennessee Department of Transportation, TVA, AT&T,
Walters State Community College, and Tennessee Technology Center with local
"Traditionally only one or two people from here have
traveled to Nashville, Knoxville, or other places to meet with these
agencies," said Hurst. "In this way, all of our local leaders had the
opportunity to meet them all at one and put faces to names and learn more about
what their relationship to Cocke County is."
Each representative gave a brief overview of their job
and also updated Cocke County leaders on the status of various projects, both
past and present, relating to the county.
