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.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
