From Dwight Jones:
Welcome to the April 2012 edition of the “Building a Better Richmond” newsletter.
I’m proud to share that the metro-Richmond region was recently ranked as the 3rd best location in job creation according to a Gallup’s Job Creation Index. Such rankings are significant as they show others are becoming aware of our efforts to move Richmond forward, even in a down economy. Health Diagnostics Laboratory (HDL) is a great example of corporations in our city that are growing and expanding. I recently participated in the ‘Big Chomp’, which was an event to break ground on the expansion of HDL’s corporate headquarters in downtown. With the expansion, comes 653 new jobs that we welcome to the city.
