[April 25, 2013]  On Tuesday afternoon, Geoff Ladd, executive director of the Abraham Lincoln Tourism Bureau of Logan County, released the following statement to the media:


After nearly eight years with the Abraham Lincoln Tourism Bureau of Logan County, I have decided to pursue exciting new employment opportunities.

I am looking forward to helping the bureau during this transition phase for their organization.

Tourism remains a vital part of the local economy, and I am pleased that over the last several years we have seen a growth in the hotel tax revenue by over 30%, which means more and more people are coming to visit for the events, sports tournaments and daily attractions we have to offer.

I want to thank all my board members past and present, my staff, my industry colleagues, and all our great volunteers. I also want to issue special thanks to Larry Van Bibber, who through his philanthropic efforts brought the World's Largest Covered Wagon to Lincoln.

Work still continues on The Mill on 66 restoration project, which is owned by the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County, and I will continue to be a part of that organization. This is an important project, and when fully restored and opened as a museum the attraction will be an even bigger tourism draw to Lincoln and Logan County.
