If you were to ask me what I do, say at a cocktail party, social gathering, or business event, I would summarize my extremely challenging, stressful, and occasionally rewarding position by telling you that “I am the economic development guy for a mid-sized Chicago suburb.”

If you are already aware of all that entails, kudos to you! But I would bet that most folks do not really know what, exactly, that…

Everyone is interested about and talks about economic development, but they do not know it. I will share info about the field for anyone and everyone.
