DURING THE FINAL DAYS OF 2011 I WILL BE POSTING SOME MEMORABLE BLOGS I PUBLISHED THE PREVIOUS YEAR. I HOPE YOU ENJOY ANOTHER LOOK AT THESE PIECES.
“We humbly submit this multiple-source REALITY CHECK for the citizens of Franklin, Mayor Tom Taylor and the Forward Franklin Economic Development Committee members and ask that you remember what you see and read here when our bloviating, misleading City leaders declare ‘MISSION ACCOMPLISHED’ and claim that Franklin’s economic climate is improving thanks to this committee which, since its creation on June 21, 2011, has held five meetings and one workshop. A look at the committee’s meeting minute’s reveals little to no substantive progress in achieving the primary goals of this new committee, other than considering whether to reappropriate funds and spend $110,484 for marketing materials and possibly a website.”
While I commend this committee's members for coming forward to serve, the committee's lineup lacks substantive business/job creation experience. So how can it have a dramatic impact on improving Franklin's business climate?
Back when this issue first began to surface, I offered real, solid advice on how to do this important job just right.
