Pretty impressive stuff. What are we doing to attract these companies to San Marcos? According to the Austin Business Journal, they don’t get any city or state incentives, because they are leasing space. So, I would guess that they are moving for the talent and the lifestyle/community.

Have any of our elected officials ever even been to Mountain View (population 71,000), to see what we are competing with?

How do we become more like them?
