I'm concerned about the declining population of our city and the impact this is beginning to have on our local businesses, our school, city infrastructure and tax base. As a result of that concern a few of us are involved in a telecommuter recruitment strategy work group under the auspices of the city. We're working on recruitment strategies to bring people here who can bring their jobs along with them. I'm interested in hearing your ideas about growing our city's population in a way that does not gentrify the heck out of it and make it impossible for a whole lot of us to afford living here.
