Today was bittersweet for me because of the excitement associated with a major economic development announcement - GE Aviation - as well as the biannual fundraiser and fashion show organized by the Republican Women of Huntsville, the most well-attended event in the club's history.
I knew I could not be in two places at once. Because we committed months in advance to modeling for the (amazing and worthwhile) luncheon featuring Chief Justice Lyn Stuart, several of us missed the GE Aviation factory grand opening. That being said, I could not help but reminisce about when we (a community, a team) officially announced the plans for GE Aviation on 27 October 2015 with my friend, Jim Patterson. GE Aviation is expected to double its employment base (from 90 to 180) within the next year, with a potential of up to 300 jobs. Jim would be proud! We all should be proud. Thank you, GE, for investing in Alabama. #Our67
