Hinesville Mayor Jim Thomas told business and community leaders Thursday that Monday’s listen session with representatives from the Army Force Management Office will be the most important meeting in this community for many years to come.
Speaking at the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce People Through Progress Luncheon, he told the packed banquet room at the Performing Arts Center that it was an opportunity to tell the Army how important Fort Stewart is to the community, and how important it is to the Army and Department of Defense.
He referred to Hinesville as a “company town” consisting mostly of active duty and former soldiers who support the installation that has a great economic impact on the community.
He urged community leaders and citizens to attend Monday’s Listening Session at the Performing Arts Center at 6 p.m. For more information, see Sunday’s Coastal Courier.
