The Christian County Economic Development Corporation is a 501c(3) nonprofit focused on bettering the economy of the county.
Dick Adams became the new director in February.
Adams says it all started in the 80s when Taylorville and Christian County were fighting to have the new prison built in the county.
In the short term, the CCEDC is game-planning for the long term.
Adams comes into the director role after the city twice elected him as mayor. He has served in a variety of community roles since that time, including as a headman of the Christian County Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities program.
Adams appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
