Mr Jenkins works in the construction industry pouring concrete. I spoke with him as I made my way down Madison Avenue recently. With the slow economy he’s come to Clarksville looking for work in the cities construction industry. He states that things are not looking too good. While Clarksville has yet to feel the pinch as intensely as other areas of our country it no doubt will. Clarksville is always slow to enter a recession, and even slow to getting out of one as well. This fact does not bode well for the potential success of Clarksville’s redevelopment plans.
