(MITCHELL) - Mitchell Mayor Gary Pruett has been elected as secretary of the board of directors of the Administrative Resources association.

ARa Executive Director Eric Frey says the appointment reflects the respect of Pruett by his fellow mayors. Founded in 1973 with help from the Lilly Endowment, ARa helps cities better compete for community and economic development resources and comply with complex federal regulations.

ARa has negotiated financial incentive packages for more than 200 new industrial ventures resulting in the investment of more than $750 million and the creation of more than 4,000 new jobs.

In the area of community development, ARa has developed and administered more than 600 projects involving water and sewer systems, affordable housing, park and recreation facilities, new public buildings, downtown and neighborhood revitalization, law enforcement programs and transportation systems.
