Doubting Economic Development In Flint
"I do all of the economic development here in the district," Watkins said... Watkins, as director of the township's Central Business Development Authority, has shepherded a downtown development authority-type agency involved in just five major road and building projects since 2001. That's the year the CDBA stopped bringing in tax money and began winding down its operations... but when asked to detail how many hours he spends in meetings, or how else he works on economic development, he said, "That's none of your ... business."
