Best Promoter of Unrestrained Growth

Rocky Scott, chairman of the Economic Development Corporation

Over the years, Rocky got used to being treated like some kind of hero for doing his job -- bringing scores of businesses to town. Now that they're here, though, Rocky is mad, because the community and its leaders are actually agitating to protect and create healthy neighborhoods and a better, not just a bigger, city. He doesn't understand why those leaders -- people he believes he bestowed power to -- would side with their constituents and their demands that the city reject unrestrained sprawl.

Be patient with Rocky. Maybe one day he'll understand. (CD)
