According to this story in the El Paso Times, Mayor Oscar Leeser had this to say about El Paso’s economic development:
Leeser compared the progress El Paso is making to planting a fruit tree. His comparison began with purchasing the tree from a nursery, then driving it home — in a Hyundai. Leeser is president of Hyundai of El Paso. The audience was quick to catch on to the business plug.
“You have to keep watering the tree before it bears fruit,” he said as he continued the analogy.
I guess now we’re still digging the hole. We’ll get the tree later.
What would you say if you were mayor of the U.S. city that lost the greatest share of locals last year?
