Columbus’ current prosperity is a direct result of the foresight of previous city leaders. That was one of the messages delivered by Mayor Jim Lienhoop during the recent “Columbus Present” presentation at the Columbus Learning Center.
Mayor Lienhoop says that one of the things that make Columbus stand out is its educational opportunities, something that can easily be taken for granted.
Lienhoop says that educational opportunities directly tie-in to the local economy, which he calls “very strong.”
The Mayor adds that Columbus is a welcoming community that values immigration and diversity. He says that about 50,000 people live in Columbus.
Mayor Lienhoop says that Columbus remains the envy of several communities and that the city must continue working to maintain what makes it special.
This event was the second of a three-part series that looks at the past, present and future of Columbus. The next event, “Columbus Future,” is set for March 29th at the Columbus Learning Center.
