Annual banquet April 26:
Jerry Williams to discuss Destination Medical Center future
Jerry Williams is the featured speaker for the 2014 Annual Banquet at the Spring Valley Community Center. Williams, the former Rochester School District Superintendent and current President of the Rochester Public Utilities Board has also been tapped as interim President of the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce. Williams was also chairman of the Common Cents Steering Committee that campaigned for the extension of the Rochester sales tax, a portion that is now shared with Spring Valley for economic development. He said "I believe that including the 17 surrounding communities in 'our' economic development effort makes us a stronger region - a 'we're all in this together' attitude - and puts us in a position of being inclusive rather than exclusive."
Jerry will be discussing the progress being made to develop Destination Medical Center in Rochester and to secure Mayo Clinic, Rochester and Minnesota's status as a global destination for health care
