Although the hard copy edition of the newspaper headlined the article Gordon vows 35,000 more jobs by 2012, the online version softens that a tad, with this more hopeful headline: Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon seeks to bring 35,000 jobs to Valley by end of year.
“This Valley will have 35,000 new jobs in one year,” Gordon boasted.
Of course, since Philly will termed out at the end of this year, no one will be able to hold him accountable for his unfunded braggadocio.
But 35,000 of them? That’s even more than anyone suspected.
