Digging Deeper Introduction

An Introduction to Digging Deeper

To: Current and Potential Leaders in Gaston County

For several years I have considered writing about major human issues right here at home in Gaston County.

Is now the time to begin? Yes, I think so and hope you will agree.

The highlights are:

  1. about 304 “leaders” across Gaston County are in my network.
  2. friends have agreed to help, especially writing on issues for which they are both well informed and have high passion.
  3. 102 topics have thus far been accumulated. Most are about our human issues.
  4. and, we will report newsworthy stuff with high emphasis on applying business principles of continuous improvement.

Please take a look at
 our guidelines and purpose statement listed below.

I hope you will help this ship float by reading, giving serious thought, making comments, taking action yourself, and encouraging others to become involved.

Look for the second letter soon with a starter list of future letters with authors.

    This is a great opportunity for keeping these issue on the front burner and working together. It is also a forum for “everyone” to be involved at some level working for the betterment of the whole. Looking forward to what’s next!
