Every so often we check in with mayors around the country to get a sense of what the economy looks and feels like in their cities. In the days leading up with to the election, we called Mayor Dennis Mock from Dalton, Georgia; Mayor Louise Carter-King from Gillette, Wyoming; and Mayor Biff Traber from Corvallis, Oregon. Each of their towns has its unique concerns when it comes to the election and the economy. What they all can agree on is that this election has left them and their constituents unsure of what is to come.
