Coffee Talk Focuses on Manufacturing

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Jobs and our local economy are the focus of a joint meeting between Rockford's Mayor Larry Morrissey and the Winnebago County Board Chairman Scott Christiansen.

Every few months the Rockford Area Economic Development Council invites local leaders for a coffee talk. Christiansen says it should be a priority to help existing companies grow especially in the manufacturing sector. On the topic on crime, Mayor Morrissey says in the next six months, he expects a formal partnership between local law enforcement agencies to deal with violent crime in the region.
