Mercer County Executive Dan Benson spoke to our Rotary Club on Feb. 23, sharing highlights of his comprehensive transition report that will guide the way for reforms, services and investments in the county in the coming months and years.  The report is available at
He discussed plans for capital improvements to key facilities in the county and said he wants to “super-charge” tourism ahead of the nation’s 250th anniversary.  Job one, he said, will be to get the county’s finances back in order.  Benson said his administration will be guided by three principles - collaboration, innovation and transparency.
