Invisible stimulus — Salena Zito

“We didn’t receive any of the stimulus money,” says Leadville Mayor Bud Elliot. “We weren’t eligible because we are considered too poor of a community.”

Elliott, a Democrat, says the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was “designed to help large cities, not small-town America.”
