Poll asks rural residents, 'How important is rural economic development?'
Beef Daily, a blog by fifth-generation South Dakota rancher Amanda Radke that is published as part of Beef Magazine, is asking readers, "How important is rural economic development?" As of this morning, 42 percent of resondents voted “Yes, our community has benefited from rural economic activity,” Radke writes. Another 23 percent answered, “No, we don’t have any rural economic development activities, but need something to revitalize our community,” 19 percent said "they aren’t concerned with their town’s lack of rural economic development activities and the final 15 percent haven’t seen any improvement based on their town’s economic initiatives."
