What Bert Has To Say About Columbus Metro Area

Columbus, the third largest city in Georgia, among other things supports the large nearby Fort Benning army base. The base occupies the better part of the county and dominates the economy and the local mindset. The area was once a textile producer but has modernized and diversified into financial services, and is in fact headquarters for AFLAC (insurance) and Synovus, a regional banking conglomerate. Even with the transition, the employment picture is fairly bleak.
