Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella was recently honored by The Economic Development Council of Colorado (EDCC) as Volunteer of the Year, an award recognizing an individual who is not employed in the economic development profession but has a history of involvement in projects that are of significant importance to the economy of the state or one of its regions.
“Commissioner Repella was chosen because of her leadership efforts with elected officials and economic development professionals, her belief in the role of government to facilitate and foster a fertile business environment, her important contribution to the passage of HB 12-1029 – The Colorado Jobs Act, and her service on numerous volunteer boards in Douglas County,” said John Cody, EDCC chairman.
The EDCC is a state-wide, nonprofit organization dedicated to successful, responsible economic development – specifically to strategically retain, expand, and attract primary employers. EDCC represents the collective economic development interests of both the private and public sectors.
