North Country Regional Economic Development Council Co-Chairs Issue Statement In Response to the Governor’s announcement:

Joint quote from NCREDC co-chairs Katheryn Morris and James McKenna:
“The announcement by Governor Kathy Hochul that the North Country Regional Economic Development Council won the statewide competition for its plan “Next Move NY” is a win for transitioning soldiers, the North Country and New York State. This program will offer transitioning soldiers from Fort Drum a seamless connection to jobs, credentialing and degrees in the North Country.

Next Move NY will build the most robust workforce pipeline for transitioning soldiers and their spouses in the country.”
