I am quite sure buried somewhere in the thousands of pages of documentation for the Southeast policy area is a study showing the rationale claiming the 25,000 jobs. Of course the study was probably performed by a consultant hired and paid by the city, so of course, it would provide the narrative needed.

Your point is well taken. The city has failed to bring any employers to town based on the SEPA jobs center, or without offering some sort of incentive. And of course the first projects in the SEPA are new subdivisions. Let's not forget when Mr. Hume said build the homes, and the jobs will follow.

Mr Bojangles

I knew a man Bojangles
And he'd dance for you
In worn out shoes
With silver hair a ragged shirt
And baggy pants
He would do the old soft shoe
He would jump so high
Jump so high
Then he lightly touch down
He told me of the time he worked with
Minstrel shows travelling
Throughout the south
He spoke with tears of fifteen years
How his dog and he
They would travel about.
But his dog up and died
He up and died
And after twenty years he still grieved
He said "I dance now
At every chance in the Honky Tonks
For my drinks and tips
But most the time I spend
Behind these country bars
You see on I drinks a bit"
Then he shook his head
Oh lord when he shook his head
I could swear I heard someone say please
Mister Bojangles
Call him Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles come back and dance please
Come back and dance again Mr Bojangles
