I agree with you 100%! I've been to Olympia and it's a funky State Capitol town worthy of a visit. County names are meaningless to anyone outside the region, and they do nothing to sell rooms or meeting space to outsiders. Call it having "microvision!"

Guess they don't understand a rising tide lifts all boats.

Absolutely correct Bill! Until recently, the folks in the Palm Springs area wouldn't concede the fact that PS was the identifier for the region and nine jurisdictions fought that battle for more than 15 years. Cities need to acknowledge that their communities are what the visitors think they are and to force political correctness isn't going to change their perceptions! You can have a political feel good or be successful -- your choice. Visitors don't care about city boundaries only the destination experience.

I know City Councils think it's "their money"...but why a public popularity content (e.g., an election) makes people think they are experts in marketing never ceases to amaze me.
