When it comes to tourism, the impact is dramatic. Those potential visitors from outside our community may be influenced by negative headlines having to do with everything from local officials, crime rates, economic segregation, and controversies related to FSU Football. Kerri Post is the Executive Director for Visit Tallahassee which is charged with the responsibility of advancing Tallahassee’s image and encouraging the growth of tourism. Kerri will talk with Brien about the various projects they have in operation and the progress being made toward these goals.
