If you listen to almost every local community booster, someone will mention tourist dollars. Everyone thinks their locales have places that will attract tourists if we could all just get the word out. In reality, tourism dollars is a desperation gambit for places with not much else going for them. You know, like New York, in particular upstate New York. Tourism MIGHT boost a FEW local businesses, but it won't replace the salaried jobs lost. Pollyanna comes to mind. But what the Heck, it keeps some people busy.

It is a good thing to have cheerleaders for the area. Thaank you for your work. However, in my opinion. there was no mention concerning jobs as a good reason to move here nor was there any talk from someone about the effort to create jobs.
