The Economic Development Mayor is Coming Up Snake Eyes

I was recalling all of the economic "wins" the Mayor has announced over his tenure.  His announcement to completion rate is way south of the Mendoza line. (baseball reference...which applies to several of our Wahoos but not RAY CHANG)

Batting Average on the above deals - 500 "new"jobs claimed, Zero "new" jobs delivered.

Why does the local press cover the announcements as Mayoral wins, but when the deal falls through they aren't Mayoral losses?

This administration will announce any deal with the minimum or no due diligence on the project.

If ST Aerospace stumbles, somebody may actually figure out the economic development skills of the Hayward Administration are a myth.
