The 25K Jobs Tour of Rural Utah, in partnership with the San Juan County Chamber of Commerce, will be in San Juan County on Thursday, August 10 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the San Juan County Fairgrounds in Monticello.

“The event will have a host of activities for all ages, including food and networking. There will be representatives from industry, education and government. Our hope is to connect San Juan County residents with the resources they need to create new jobs and elevate our local economies,” said Bayley Hedglin, Executive Director for the San Juan Chamber of Commerce.

Governor Gary R. Herbert announced the 25K Jobs Tour of rural Utah. The tour, organized with World Trade Center Utah and 20 economic development partners, is part of the governor’s initiative to create 25,000 jobs in 25 rural counties over the next four years.

“I will not rest until all 29 counties experience the same economic success,” said Gov. Herbert.

While the state as a whole has enjoyed economic prosperity, some rural communities have faced high unemployment rates. Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox will represent Herbert on the 25K Jobs Tour. The state is partnering with World Trade Center Utah to combine rural networks.
