Matthews Delivers State of the County Address

"Our county is growing every day. We welcomed our millionth resident; we are attracting new jobs and are supporting our skilled and educated workforce," Wake County Board of Commissioners' Chair Phil Matthews reported during his State of the County address Monday, November 17, 2014, during the regularly scheduled Board of Commissioners' meeting.

As part of Matthews' presentation, a short video was shown to highlight the Commissioners' goals and accomplishments from the past year:

  • Wake County's population was estimated to reach one million residents in August 2014;
  • The County maintained a triple-A rating from Moody's, Fitch, and Standard and Poor's rating agencies; and
  • The County partnered with the Wake County Public School System for the site acquisition, design and construction of new building projects.

Matthews concluded his presentation by discussing ongoing initiatives such as healthiest capital county, innovative public safety programs and transit strategies.

"As I reflect on what this year has brought to us, I am excited for the future," Matthews said. "Wake County is in the position to thrive and prosper for many years to come."
