|Laredo settles for Eagle Ford morsels while San Antonio plans a feast!|
San Antonio's Economic Development Foundation is headed by former US H.U.D. Secretary Henry Cisneros. He, along with former Mayor Wolff have been meeting with Haliburton and Schulember officials about possibly building a huge Eagle Ford Shale center of operations in the Alamo City. This is what is called thinking big. The type of jobs associated with such a headquarters will include many highly-paid positions such as directors, administrators, researchers and the like.
Although San Antonio appears to be shoe-in, the plans are not final. I wonder why our travelling Mayor Raul Salinas hasn't mentioned anything about meeting with these industry fat cats? I guess he's willing to accept that San Antonio is one more city that will devour our lonche. Like I've said before: they'll let Laredo have all the lower-level jobs but save the really transformational investment for cities like San Antonio. OK, Mayor, you love to travel- now go do your job!
