A funny thing happened on the way to this month’s newsletter. On Tuesday November 6 th, our very own Susan Seaman, Program Director for AEDC, was elected to be the new mayor of the City of Eureka. Now on the first and third Tuesdays of the month, Susan will walk the two blocks from AEDC to Eureka City Hall where she will preside over city council meetings. Congratulations Susan!  

But, that's not the only news this month. We also have a story about one of our repeat borrowers who is building a much needed collection of child care centers in our region. We'll take a look back at the Housing Summit, hosted by RREDC. And finally, we'll take a look at the California Economic Development Summit, where they introduced CalSavers, a new retirement program starting next year. (Check out the link in the story) Hopefully, we'll hear more about that in the near future!

I will now submit my Executive Director opening paragraph to the Mayor-Elect so this newsletter can be sent!
