Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds commends revitalization in Downtown Waterloo

WATERLOO (EXCERPTS FROM WCFCOURIER.COM)— Gov. Kim Reynolds gave the keynote address to the 2018 Iowa Downtown Conference at the Riverloop Amphitheatre in Waterloo on Wednesday.

Reynolds found Waterloo’s downtown revitalization and growth exciting, she said. Reynolds explained that the partnership between state and local government can entice new businesses to come to Iowa and work with local entrepreneurs and startup companies. “That’s how we’re going to grow our economy,” she said, adding that Government sets up a fertile business environment, but it doesn’t create jobs. “It’s individuals and small communities,” Reynolds said. “There’s certainly a lot of that happening in this community in Waterloo. It’s exciting to see that.”

She used the chance to tout the good things going on in Iowa. “People recognize the positive things that are happening in our state,” she said. “I’m really proud of the direction we’re heading.” (WCF.com image.)
