Ideas to Become a “Smart City”

What is a "Smart City"? Is it the people who guide the government? The people who serve on boards and commissions? The voters or the non-voters? How about the people who desire a better life? Meet Mark Modzelewski (he knows...so call him Mark!) from Treeline who says it's not about giving away the farm to capture the new and bright shinny thingy for economic development. Mark says you can build a strong a vibrant economy for your town, city, county and state by focusing on what you already have. The people who  create, drive business and will build your economy. It's pretty...smart.

Entrepreneurship, Jobs, Flint and More with Congressman Kildee

This week TrustBelt 2017 by Conway Global came to Des Moines. Think of this event as a two day look at manufacturing, the new economy, jobs, technology and ground breaking ideas to enable economic growth in the 16 states that had been called the Rust Belt. Here we sit down with Congressman Dan Kildee (D-MI) who represents the cities of Flint, Saginaw, Bay City and others and talk about everything from water in Flint to Shinola in Detroit. We think you'll enjoy his progressive, straight forward attitude about economic development there...and here. Besides, it was great to hang out with a fellow Michigander for a bit.
