15 May 2019
McCOOK, Neb. — Communities that concentrate on quality of life and basics like adequate housing and a trained labor pool are more successful in supporting and attracting businesses, a state official told the McCook Rotary Club.
David Rippe, director of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, told the group that the communities that are focusing on building a quality of place where people want to live are the communities that are “ahead of the curve.”
He explained that jobs are everywhere and the entire country is in a “war for talent.”
