Jun 23, 2004 — Things are looking up for people in Jefferson County, thanks in large part to Fort Drum, but the economy remains the number one concern. That's according to the results of Jefferson Community College's 5th annual community survey. David Sommerstein spoke with Joel Lalone, the survey coordinator. He says residents' general satisfaction in Jefferson County dropped sharply after the 2001 terrorist attacks and during the economic recession. This year, the sense of quality of life remains lower than it was before September 11th, but it's improving. Still, Lalone says, most people cite the local economy as the number one problem.
