Survey of Rural Challenges with Deb Brown & Becky McCray

When we saw the press release come through last week the headline pointed to the fact that far too often the media covering rural communities fail to report on what rural folks say are the true challenges they face. And, it's not just opinion. For years Becky McCray and Deb Brown from SaveYour.Town have collected surveys from rural residents and what these folks say are issues often does not match what is being reported. It's a great conversation and it's right here.  One more thing, if you want to know more about population and what makes a place a "micropolitan" or "nanopolitan" community here is that link
