The Lancaster Rotary Club hosted Tony Crumbley, vice president of research of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, as its guest speaker last Thursday.
Crumbley presented numbers to his audience that show projected growth of Lancaster County and Mecklenburg County, N.C.
Crumbley contends that Charlotte and the surrounding region are not in a recession.
– Mecklenburg County created 14,000 new jobs last year, and 1,326 firms moved to the county.
– North Carolina created 68,000 new jobs last year.
