On Country Mice And City Mice
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
Yes, we could be called a tad repetitive, if you’re a reader of Site Selection for more than a couple of years, particularly of the March issue. But both Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts and Texas Governor Greg Abbott are no less deserving of their respective Governor’s Cups for economic development success in 2018 than they were the last few times they won. This is the Nebraska chief executive’s third consecutive win and his state’s fourth; Gov. Abbott adds a fifth consecutive Cup to his state’s collection that now boasts seven.
You may experience some déjà vu, too, when you get to our coverage of Top Micropolitans and find that Findlay, Ohio tops the list — again. My point is to congratulate the winning governors and mayors of all the states and metros appearing on the rankings in this issue. If they’re on those lists, for however many years has been the case, then whatever they’re doing in economic development is working rather well.
