A New Era for Benton Harbor

Readers of the Lansing State Journal this weekend were provided with a unique perspective regarding Benton Harbor in the form of a great commentary from long time community leader Jeff Noel.

Noel, who served as the head of the economic development agency Cornerstone Alliance prior to his current role as Corporate Vice President for Communications & Public Affairs for Whirlpool Corporation, delivers a solid bit of background for out-state readers who typically only get bits and pieces scattered through their "news feed" on any given day. He says that Benton Harbor is being rebuilt despite the naysayers.

The commentary is a brief description of what has transpired over several decades in the region and is a variation on the message he delivered to onlookers including Governor Rick Snyder when the governor toured the construction site at the new Inn at Harbor Shores last fall.

Here's a link to the story published in the Lansing State Journal this weekend:
