Now that's not fair. Small towns everywhere that happen to be off the Interstate highway grid seriously struggle to attract business. The E.D.'s job in cities like Centralia is incredibly frustrating. You spend hundreds of hours on the phone and in meetings, only to be told "No, you don't have [xyz], and, besides, where's our multi-million-dollar tax break coming from?" by business owners. This can happen but so many times before you give up and pack it in.
