With hopes of the Tenaska Corporation project going to a vote before the Illinois Senate this upcoming veto session in October, the Christian County Economic Corporation continues to pursue and search for ways to create jobs to benefit Christian County.
Executive director Mary Renner explains that the mission of the organization is to help recruit possible businesses to the county in an effort to create an increase in employment and economic growth for the county.

Renner adds that within that 5-year span several things could happen, but the organization must remain optimistic and continue to search for ways to improve the job market in Christian County.
She adds that thanks to signs of economic recovery, the unemployment rate has seen a decrease since this time a year ago.
