Fall feathers hunt for new business

December 10, 2003
Albany- The 16th Annual Fall Feather Hunt got started Wednesday with business leaders from other states and even other countries looking at South Georgia as a place to bring new business.

There are representatives from 16 companies that have gathered for the hunt. The goal is to bring more business and more jobs to South Georgia. In the past three years, guests of the hunt have decided to locate facilities in the state bringing more than 1, 100 jobs and 171- million in new and expanded investments.

"We have a great place to live, it's a great place to work, it's a great place to raise a family," said Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor, who was in Albany for the hunt. "But if all of Georgia that is seen by prospects is the Atlanta Airport or the Atlanta area, then all the jobs will continue to go there."
