Very few economic developers escape the net of influence and control that politicians cast over their locations. Politics and economic development go hand-in-hand. A well-established advisor to communities seeking economic development was once quoted as saying ... politics is part of the game and (the best of economic developers indulge) in it with relish (source). Eventually the question that a community must ask is whether the marriage between its economic developer and politicians was for better or worse. Links to various viewpoints about achievements or lack thereof by politicos engaged in economic development are offered below.
