Podcast: College Station eco-devo 101

By Jay Socol, Public Communications Director

We hear it all the time: “Hey, College Station, how come you don’t bring a [fill in the blank] to town?”

The other side of that is, “Hey, bozos, why do you keep bringing more [fill in the blank] to our city?”

First, some of you have anger issues. Seriously, though, a lot of people don’t understand:

  • What the city can be credited for bringing to town.
  • What the city should not be credited/blamed for bringing to town.
  • What our economic development staff is actively recruiting to CS.

In this episode of AUIYB, Economic Development Director Natalie Ruiz and I discuss all these points, as well as some things about Post Oak Mall you may not know. (cliffhanger!)
