A trip to Procter and Gamble

August 7, 2002

Dougherty County and Albany leaders are taking a trip to Proctor and Gamble's Headquarters to encourage expansion at the Albany plant.

The Mayor, city manager, county commission chairman, and the presidents of both the Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Commission leave next Wednesday for Maryland. They plan to meet with Proctor and Gamble leaders to thank the company for both the jobs and revenue the plant brings to Albany and to encourage future expansion.

"Procter and Gamble can move their business to Mexico, Canada, and many others places," said Jeff Sinyard, President of EDC. "If we can convince them to remember Albany when they're making decision, our trip will have been a success."

Each year city and county leaders visit the headquarters of a major business located in Dougherty County. Last year, they meet with officials at the Pentagon to discuss the Marine Corps Logistic Base.
