Louisville is busy remaking economic development
April 13, 2016,
When I formally joined the economic development field nearly two years ago after serving as deputy chief of staff to Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, and after 10 prior years in the private sector, I knew it was about job creation and business attraction, retention, and expansion. I also was warned by a friend in the field that “economic development” could mean just about anything depending on who you asked and who needed to borrow the term for his or her cause. All of the above has turned out to be true.
