A crowd of 400 attendees gathered last Friday for the inaugural Collin County Business Alliance State of the Business luncheon. The event featured a conversation with Gov. Gregg Abbott on the state of business in Texas and the inspiration behind his book “Broken but Unbowed.” “Collin County is a vibrant example of Texas and the United States,” said Gov. Abbott.
Following Gov. Abbott’s conversation, local and state elected officials discussed the interconnected roles public policy and business has on the state of Collin County’s business environment and quality of life. The moderator was Tracy Merzi of the Dallas Business Journal and a Collin County resident for a number of years. The topics discussed included infrastructure, rising property taxes and Collin County College. (Click here for the full story)
