Sugarland Makes the News, Again!

OK, so I’m still on my Sugarland kick. I reported to you the other day that Sugarland had the 4th highest percentage of residents with advanced degrees – based on an Inc. magazine story on Boom Towns ’06.
In a related story on the State of Job Growth, Sugarland is mentioned again in a sidebar as having the Highest Household Median Income of any city with $84.842. It edged out Missouri City, another suburb of Houston, which had $71,902, followed by San Jose at $71,765.
I think the area around us either has the best PR person around to work with Inc. magazine, or it’s time for us (again) to shine.
While Texas, overall, only realized a 1.6 percent increase in job growth compared with some states that had VERY high growth (Nevada: 19.3 percent, Wyoming, 9.5 percent), I think South Texas can be very proud of our accomplishments in income.
Income drives growth, right?
