Creating Jobs and Economic Development
Memphis economy has momentum like no time before. 20,000 more Memphians are working since Jim Strickland took office and unemployment is at a near-record low. Businesses want to know they can grow in a city with reliable, responsible government. Jim Strickland is doing that. Some $19 billion in development is happening in Greater Memphis and for the first time in decades, more of that is happening inside our city limits than outside of them. Companies like St. Jude and ServiceMaster are expanding, and some exciting and growing companies including Indigo Ag and Mimeo.com are relocating their national headquarters to Memphis.
