Peterson begins work to boost development

   Eva Peterson started work Tuesday with lots of key people to meet – each with their own expectations of what her job called for – an office to organize and Matagorda County to study.
   But the new executive director of Matagorda County 
   Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) biggest task is finding the right economic formula to make the county grow.
   Peterson’s experience – her toolset - should help in meeting that challenge.
   In an interview last week with the Bay City Sentinel, Peterson talked about economic development in Palacios and for Matagorda County. 
   Team leadership, project management, downtown revitalization, public speaking, strategic planning, budgeting, land-use planning, cost/benefit analysis, operations management, market analysis, process improvement, marketing and public relations are her areas of expertise.
