Economic Development: Opportunity, Variety Mesa County has enormous resources to attract and grow new business, add new industries and make our economy grow. Mesa County has to partner with other governmental agencies, businesses, chambers of commerce, educational institutions, labor unions and our citizens, to identify and encourage opportunities. This has to become one of our highest priorities.
Jobs: Respect, Variety, Benefits Mesa County has lost 12,000 jobs since 2009. Our citizens need us to replace these jobs with positions that use and grow their talents, provide interesting work and pay wages and benefits that enable them to live a decent life in our beautiful county.
