One way to boost revenues for the cities in San Diego County is to get residents and businesses to spend their dollars locally.
That's the idea behind a new initiative called Think Local First. The push, promoted by a number of chambers of commerce and supported by a group of San Diego politicians, encourages residents to hire and contract services locally to keep sales tax revenues in San Diego County.
