A weekly update of headlines, stories, events, and happenings impacting Clermont County businesses.

I hope to produce this newsletter on a weekly basis and include the stories I’m following for the week, as well as updates from our elected officials.
I welcome feedback on how I can improve this newsletter, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any comments or suggestions!
