Ballard's Economic Plan: Full of Holes
Mayor Greg Ballard released a five point economic plan yesterday. It's incredibly thin on detail, and it is really full of nothing but fluff and will do nothing to solve the city's budget crisis.
The plan, detailed here, would create at least two new government agencies, force the Mayor into the role of a lobbyist as well as into doing the Secretary of State's job for him.
I'll dive more into specifics when I have a chance to digest it. But, at first blush, I have to say, "After almost four years in office, Mr. Mayor, is this all ya got?"
