Notable quote: "Here's why Smart Growth has a bad name: Intel, Vignette, and CSC. We need to change the matrix to include a local business component [such as] dedicating some portion of it to local businesses, loan guarantees for local businesses, and adding an affordable housing component. If we do that we can create a world-class environment."
