County Executive Jonathan Delagrave shared the State of the County last night at his annual address. He expressed his pride in the success of recent Racine County initiatives and developments, from the construction of new manufacturing facilities and business parks, to the implementation of a new GED initiative that will give individuals without a high school diploma the credentials to join a skilled workforce.
The County Executive recognized Higher Expectations for its role in helping build a fully capable and employed workforce, and specifically noted our work convening Ascension All Saints Reach-Out-And-Read initiative and United Way of Racine County’s Imagination Library program, which provide early literacy resources to families.
The County Executive also used this time to address some of the challenges the Racine County community faces, such as a high prevalence of ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and to propose solutions that will put Racine County on a path to an even brighter future.
