FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership welcomed mayors and commissioners from around the region for the signing of the code of ethics.
Leaders from 11 counties came out for the event, signing the document, and recognizing the economic partnership in northeast Indiana.
The code of ethics was signed for the first time back in 2011, but the partnership began long before that. It signified a relationship and collaboration between counties to continue growth in the region.
"We're the largest organized region in the state, eleven counties," said John Sampson, Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership CEO, adding, "admittedly everyone has a unique and very special identity that makes them very diverse, and we have strong opinions across the board, but in economic development, you have to voice those concerns and disagreements, and you have to agree to act."
