I’m sure many of you saw the headlines in the newspaper stating that Anderson was ranked 64th Best Small Places for Business and Careers in the nation. While this is no surprise for those of us familiar with Anderson and all it has to offer it is none-the-less a great recognition for our ever-growing city. Even more spectacular is that Anderson was ranked 98th on the same list in 2007 so we are certainly moving in the right direction. These rankings were concluded using many different criteria but one that particularly stands out is projected economic growth through 2014 in addition to past and projected job growth.
