Community Organizer Doug Greco Challenges Kirk Watson: The Austin Chronicle

Doug Greco was already contemplating a run for mayor of Austin when, in November, Council approved an incentive package for microchip manufacturer NXP, just a couple of months after Watson announced a deal was in the works. The incentive package is the kind that Greco knows well; at his former day job as executive director and lead organizer of Central Texas Interfaith (he stepped down in January to focus on his mayoral campaign), he led efforts aimed at killing such incentive deals. Under Greco’s leadership, CTI helped kill the state program that companies used to rely on for incentive packages.
