Las Cruces, NM – Economic Development is a phrase used loosely by politicians and business leaders. It isn't always clear what they are talking about. The rhetoric, frequently coupled with notions of job creation and growth, acts like a steamroller through city hall and the state house to influence ordinances and legislation.
