CCGP Access Washington Well-Received During 2023 Visit To Nation’s Capital
6 Oct 2023
Last week, Carroll County Growth Partnership (CCGP) staff, city and county officials, and community leaders traveled to our nation’s capital for the 2023 Access Washington trip. For years, CCGP has brought local concerns to elected officials and government agencies at least once per year where they live and work in an effort to secure federal support on these issues. Recent successes from Access Washington include approval for the Manning Municipal Utilities gas pipeline expansions and additional consideration for rural critical access hospitals. CCGP Executive Director Kimberly Tiefenthaler says these trips don’t always bear fruit immediately, but it builds and maintains relationships at the highest levels of government.
