Glenn Swinton Answers Question 16 – Tourism Or Employment

In response to Question 16 about Tourism or Employment in the previous post and on the Questions page, Glenn Swinton answered:

I don’t believe the two are even comparable. The 500 tourist can easily be persuaded to attend with a single function. One newly created full-time industrial job will require the entire industrial facility to present the position. We have a long list of candidates this election that are entrepreneurs at heart. A group that gets up every day and puts others to work. When you ask 500 tourist or one full-time industrial job I ask you, Retirees or dedicated movers that develop industry your asking to attract? You get to vote, you decide. Why can’t we have both? I think realistically anyone can vote on a festival for a weekend here and there but it takes industrious minds to draw industry interests.
