Spending locally benefits community

Dear Editor,

We have had many large companies come to Stettler to upgrade our schools, water systems, sidewalks and even our new town office. Now the project managers from these companies have been instructed to support the local community and they do. They use local contractors and suppliers, hire local residents for employment, shop our business and restaurants which helps generate a good local economy and keeps jobs in our town. I thank these companies for their support it is amazing. Now I have to ask myself, why do we have local companies, contractors and levels of government who don’t support local business? I do all my shopping and business dealing I can within our town and county as much as I can and as far as I can tell I have found nothing but superior products right here in Stettler and the county.

When we support local business it keeps jobs and money in our community and with good economic growth, business owners then have money to donate back to the community. Donations are a continuous support to the many community organizations, kids programs, schools, parks, churches, the list is long and support is needed. Money spent locally, stays local and benefits our community.
