Sonora, CA — Tuolumne County Economic Development Director Larry Cope (pictured with his wife Kim) spent his first official day on the job (Monday) settling into his office and filling his calendar with appointments.
Cope will be spending his first couple of months meeting as many members of local and county governments and business owners as possible.
Cope readily admits you’ll see no overnight success stories. In fact he stats that, “This is a long course. You do not change an economy in weeks or even months. They take years to change and you have to put everything in the right place and headed in the right direction.”
