Edit: LCDC Should Target Good Jobs

If you take the candidates at their word, there's no chance Coeur d'Alene's urban renewal agency is headed for the guillotine. That doesn't mean a close shave isn't in store. As they march down the campaign trail, including a televised forum last week, all but one of the candidates for Coeur d'Alene council and mayor say Lake City Development Corp. needs to sharpen its focus on economic development, with creation of good jobs at the head of the to-do list. While economic development has always been part of LCDC's mission, it hasn't taken center stage. In all likelihood, it will now/Coeur d'Alene Press Editorial Board. More here.

Question: I don't quite understand what people mean when they say "good jobs." Can you attract good jobs to a tourism center like Coeur d'Alene. The timber jobs are gone. You're not going to create a bunch of manufacturing jobs in town. So what types of "good jobs" do you think Coeur d'Alene/Kootenai County can attract?
