Martinsville - Same Old Story
Posted in the Collinsville Forum
#1 Feb 1, 2006
Well the folks in Martinsville & Henry County continue down the same old path. Just 3 years ago the 2 localities paid Wayne Sterling $200,000 a year to try and bring new industries to martinsville & Henry County. He lasted just over a year, brought in 2 companies which were questionable and didn't last and then he left the area along with a lot of taxpayers money ( salary ). Now, the 2 localities have hired a gentleman from the Lake Norman area of North Carolina at an annual salary of $160,000 to try his luck at bringing in new companies. Comparing the Lake Norman area ( located just outside of Charlotte, NC ), and the Martinsville & Henry County area would be like comparing oranges and lemons. The Lake Norman community is an upscale suburb of Charlotte while the Martinsville area is like, well kind of the opposite. Let's hope they get something out of this $160,000 a year salary than they got out of Wayne Sterling.
