I love to tell people from out of town how we don’t allow industry in that will pollute, so we’ll always have clean air and water. We’ve turned away Motorola in the past who went to Richmond, and took their water issues to them instead. We’ve also turned down Coors, Reuben Donnelly and many others.

I personally love the way we’ve turned to tech for our area. We still have firms joining us, and in the future we’ve got 700-1000 people coming to NGIC. We also are welcoming many young retirees.

Charlottesville/Albemarle will continue to grow, but in the right way.
