In 8 years as mayor of Atlanta, Andrew Young attracted more than $70 billion in investment capital to Atlanta, Georgia. The key was he was honest, and gave every CEO and prospective investor his home number. He told them, if you have a problem, if anyone shakes you down, call me personally. This was the key to Atlanta’s growth. He did not get rich, but everyone else did. That’s called public service.
