Our Vice President/General Manager has been a member of the Board of Directors of MCEDCO since its formation in 1993. He is presently the Chairmen of the Board of Directors. The Merced County Economic Development Corporation consists of a group of local businessmen and women and representatives of all of the local cities and the County of Merced, was formed to help encourage businesses to locate in Merced County, and help existing businesses to expand and grow, all with the goal of creating jobs for local citizens. MCEDCO has been successful in obtaining State and Federal grants to fund programs to assist women and minorities to start small businesses within Merced County. MCEDCO successfully received monetary grants for local area small business development. Unfortunately, MCEDCO dissolved March 2012.
5.) Buckley Radio is an active participant of One Voice of Merced County. Our Vice President/General Manager is a founding member of One Voice of Merced County which was formed in 2003 and continues to be an active member. This group was formed to lobby, in Washington D.C and Sacramento, for projects that would improve the quality of life for local citizens. Throughout each year, One Voice members, gather with groups of people, a cross section of all segments of the community…Women, Minorities, Civic Clubs etc., to discuss what is lacking in the county, which could be funded with either Federal or State grants or legislation. The group targets Education, Transportation, Economic Development, Water, and Law Enforcement issues. The Merced County One Voice group has lobbied for many educational programs; the majority of these programs were targeted at minorities and women, to create training programs to help the participants find jobs. The lack of job skills is extremely high among local women and minorities and the improvement of those skills will be essential for them to find employment. One Voice was successful in acquiring monetary funding for local area transportation projects.
