On Feb. 19, I had the privilege of attending a meeting presided by Ruth Baxter. The meeting was about stimulating the economy.

The discussion centered around creating jobs for local residents and the emphasis was put on the urgency of buying locally. Everyone in the community needs to stop and think about what might happen to Carrollton if the local businesses were not here anymore. Most everything you buy from a business outside of Carrollton can be purchased here locally for about the same price.

I would like to commend Ruth Baxter for her part in running the meeting effectively and for portraying the urgency of local business and jobs for our residents.
