MOBERLY — Randy Asbury, president of the Moberly Area Economic Development Corporation (MAEDC), announced his impending retirement of December 15, 2023, at the September 19 MAEDC board meeting. Asbury was named president of Moberly Area Economic Development in 2022 after joining the organization in 2019.
