The Jobs Just Keep On Coming

According to this story by Jamie Smith Hopkins in The Sun today, the National Security Agency could be adding up to 11,000 new jobs at Fort Meade in addition to previously announced jobs attributed to BRAC.

"Robert C. Leib, Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold's special assistant for BRAC, said he expects significant job growth. The county had already anticipated that NSA would add about 4,000 jobs in the next four or five years, and this plan suggests to Leib that more might be coming."

This is more great news for the economic health of our area. We are fortunate to have NSA in our backyard.
