Thoughts on community building and the role of government.

Recently, I overheard a local merchant ask “why doesn’t the city do more to help business and draw people to Aztec?” I have experienced this sentiment many times in our tenure here in Aztec, and I admit, it leaves me a little mystified.

Here we are. bootstrapping, independent Westerners now turning to the government to solve our issues? John Wayne is surely rolling over in his grave.

It is my understanding that this job belongs to the businesses in town, NOT the government.

My question to you gentle reader: In your opinion, is it the government’s job to invest tax dollars to draw customers and drive growth in town, or is this the business community’s role?
