  • Swope encourages citizens to vote YES for SPLOST 

     Dear Chamber Member,

    As a longtime Coweta citizen, I am grateful for the excellent financial stewardship shown by the leadership of our county government. We have a very high quality of life here in Coweta County, and it has been accomplished without excess taxation. I believe the Commission and our county employees deserve a lot of credit for this accomplishment. Any great community has four key characteristics: 1) it is safe, 2) transportation systems evolve and are well maintained, 3) its citizens have access to outdoor recreation, and 4) the community is diverse and interesting. Today, Coweta County meets all of those characteristics, but continued investment and work are required to maintain a great community. Click here to read more

Some experts say the pace and intensity of the 21st century requires divergent action, and in this regard, divergence is the ability to generate new and different ideas, novel solutions and a culture of leadership that builds for the future rather than the present. Someone who is a divergent leader learns to make something new and vital out of the status quo.
