The Newton County Chamber of Commerce has been searching for an economic development leader for more than a year.

Chamber president Hunter Hall says he won’t rush the decision to find a qualified person.

We agree with this approach. It is much more important to hire someone with the right experience for the long term than to bring someone in just to fill this important position.

The chamber should take its time. The decision that is made will affect Newton County economically for a long time to come.
