"We are very excited to have Governor Pence as our 2014 annual meeting speaker," stated Beth Sherman, executive director of the LaGrange County Chamber of Commerce. "I recently heard of an innovative agricultural program that the governor has introduced as well as his plan to promote policies that will encourage investment and jobs and I hope he speaks on both subjects."
