NEWPORT-Despite tighter budgets and less personnel, Tennessee is better than most southern states in economic development, according to Iliff McMahan Jr., Northeast Regional Director for the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.

McMahan, who also served two terms as Cocke County mayor, was guest speaker for the Newport Lions Club during last week's meeting at Shoney's. McMahan has served as regional director for the past 16 months and works out of Johnson City.

While praising for Gov. Phil Bredesen for his efforts, McMahan said current Gov. Bill Haslam has been great in working to improve economic growth.
