Growing with Tallahassee

The banking, builders, and real estate industries got the opportunity to speak directly to those they say make the decisions that affect their lives and businesses.

The Appraisal Institute, Mortgage Bankers Association, Tallahassee builders Association, and Tallahassee Board of Realtors held the annual Growing with Tallahassee.

The panel discussion allows the groups to voice their concerns and find out what governmental representatives are doing to help Tallahassee grow.

Chairman Greg Lane said, "We ask some very direct questions and we get some direct answers. Sometimes people expect things to happen right away. If you don't bring your voice to these politicians and decision-makers, nothing's going to happen. We've been doing this for eight years. It's been a wonderful committee, wonderful meeting."

The panelists were Leon County Commission Chairman John Dailey, Tallahassee Mayor John Marks, and U.S. Congressman Steve Southerland.

    All new industry & business have been driven away from here for the last 30 years and you ask a question like that? I'm a newbie here and I can tell you what they've done to get new business here.... nothing. All of the decision makers have coushy state or gov't jobs and aren't concerned with new industry...... I got mine, you go get yours. And while they're all "meeting" maybe they can discuss 20 years of inflated home appraisals and how that has effected the local housing market crash.
