Community Leaders Call Meeting to Question Economic Development Director’s

Rejection of Union Jobs

Members of the Madisonville-Hopkins County community will meet Tuesday night to discuss Madisonville-Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Danny Koon’s rejection of new businesses to the region whose workers are represented by a union.

As reported by the Henderson Gleaner in October 2004, Koon turned away a company that had the potential of supplying 500 new jobs to the area because the business had a contract with the United Auto Workers. Koon stated in the article that the Madisonville-Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation does not, “look at any companies that have representation with a bargaining group.”

Speakers at the meeting will include:

  • Bishop Raymond Marion, pastor, Holy Temple Church of God in Christ; president, NAACP Madisonville chapter;
  • John Dugger, Secretary, Pennryrile Area Central Labor Council;
  • Marvin Sisk, International Union of Electronic, Electrical, Salaried, Machine and Furniture Workers-Communications Workers of America (IUE-CWA)

What: Community Meeting to discuss Economic Development Corporation’s actions and policies

When: Tuesday, April 5th , 6:30 p.m.

Where: Holy Temple Church of God in Christ, 150 Lunsford St., Madisonville.
