In Wednesday’s story “EDP gives update to fiscal court,” the Economic Development Partnership’s chair, Ben Nelson said, “I still am a fairly outspoken proponent that we have done a great service in this community of vilifying economic development.” It was incorrectly printed that he said the “EDP” had vilified development. Nelson said what he was trying to say was that the EDP is using its strategic plan well, but the community has yet to get behind it as much as the EDP had hoped because of an “ongoing undermining of the partnership’s credibility.”

Also, the three Boyle County appointed members to the EDP are David Williams, David Maynard and Harold McKinney.
