Hancock County business leaders got good news about the economy Tuesday. Bob Morgan, a principal with ProBank Austin, in Toledo, spoke in Findlay and said he expects consumer spending to continue to power the economy. Morgan said he also believes stocks will recover once the election is over.

Morgan told the audience at a presentation sponsored by Citizens National Bank that he believes consumers will spend the economy into 3.5 percent growth for 2019. Economic growth this year will be a little over 3 percent.

Morgan adds that a 50-year unemployment rate is a big reason why people are willing to spend more.
