The North Country largely was left out of a 12-county report offering strategies to make the region's more competitive in a global economy. CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity claims to reflect input from across its 12-county region, however North Country Alliance board passed a resolution in November that concluded findings from CenterState were not in the best interest of the North Country, stating that there is insufficient representation, consultation and collaboration. The Alliance also contends that the report focused too heavily on the Syracuse area and giving little attention to the North Country's assets. Local economicleaders fear that the North Country could lose out on state funding should the state choose to view the region based on the CenterState report. The 12 counties that CenterState represents include Cayuga, Cortland, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Seneca, St. Lawrence and Tompkins.
