In this episode, we bring you an interview with John C. Mozena, the president of the Center for Economic Accountability. John joined Mike Craig for a conversation about economic development deals at the state and local level.
We dig into John’s experience on both sides of this issue – as a former communications and public relations expert who once authored press releases supporting tax credits and subsidies in the name of “job creation” – and now as the leader of a nonpartisan advocacy organization with a different vision of economic opportunity. John shares the facts about economic development in the US and what you can do to promote transparency in your community.
