(County officials taking a trip)…A very long trip.
They leave Friday. County Board of Supervisors Chairman Ryan Kelley and County Executive Officer Ralph Cordova will accompany representative of the Imperial Regional Alliance. The Alliance is funding the trip. They will be traveling to Niger, Burkino Faso and Dubai. Not many details are being released at this time, in order to ensure an agreement is worked out. Kelley says once an agreement is signed, all the details will be released. The Supervisors did say Tuesday an agreement would have significant impact on local job creation and restoration of the Salton Sea. Sean Wilcock with the Imperial Regional Alliance, said it could be the largest investment ever in Imperial County. The Imperial County Economic Development Corporation has been instrumental in working out the investment. Kelley and Cordova will return from the trip June 19th.
