For all of you naysayers that continually bash Rockmart and Polk County, take notice of this article. We are doing better that any other county around us since 2007, and yet all you do is gripe and say what has been done wrong. Seems someone around here is doing something right, but no one can take notice, other than the industries that continue to grow like Meggit, Jefferson Southern, Muira, Tip Top and new businesses or restaurants that have built or opened since 2007. And Cedartown has lost several which means that Rockmart has even grown more to keep the county in a positive note. These numbers dont lie, Times are tough for all, but as compared to the rest of the Northwest Georgia area, were doing pretty good. Get on board and support your local businesses, governments, Chamber of Commerce and Development Authorities. Some of them are on the right track!
