    19 Projects in Warren and Washington Counties Receive $6.5 Million in Regional Economic Development Council Awards   



    Ed Bartholomew, President of EDC Warren County, today released the breakdown of funds awarded to specific projects in Warren County and Washington County at the December 11 presentation in Albany of the Regional Economic Development Council Awards.
     
    Bartholomew thanked the regional representatives who serve on the Capital Region Economic Development Council for their advocacy—Omar Usmani, Bill Hart, and Christine Edgerly—and also recognized the solid support that the area has received from Senator Betty Little and Assemblyman Dan Stec. 
     
    The funding of these projects throughout Warren County and Washington County is the result of regional cooperation with county leaders, EDC Warren County, and the Adirondack Gateway Council.
