""CONNERSVILLE, IND.— Carbon Motors announced Monday it will launch production of a new, multi-mission vehicle before the end of next year, but the Carbon TX7 might not be built here.

Carbon Motors spokesman Stacy Dean Stephens said it’s still undecided where the Carbon TX7 will be built, confirming only that it will occur in Indiana. There is still no timeline for production of Carbon’s first police vehicle, the Carbon E7.""

""
“The city and the mayor took our ability to purchase the building away from us,” Stephens said.“We were tenants with the right to purchase. Now we’re just tenants.”

Stephens said the company would like to go into production in Connersville, but that’s still to be decided.

Well may be Urbum will pay them a bribe and add it to our water bill. Oh,....wait just a second, we are a bunch of no good hill jacks who won't work. We pay our taxes and our water bill, however; we are to doped up and drunk to work. Connersville would be hard pressed to fill all them jobs,
(right Urbum?).

http://touch.wishtv.com/10023/5092049 shouldn't the citizens of Connersville have the right to know what company is the prospect company? Unless of course its a hoax which is what my money is on. There is no logical reason why he won't let the people know who the prospecting company is. But then again 30 grand on curtains isn't logical either

I believe that the Govenor and Govenor-elect will have to bring in some legal team to set up this enterprise to get it rolling vehicles out. Obviously, the Mayor of our great city is not qualified to promote any new business growth by new or expanding businesses. With the announcement of a second possible location in Indiana, the elected Governors of the great state of Indiana must become involved. If Carbon Motors cannot secure a loan to build their vehicle in Connersville, what makes the executives believe that they can build a second type elsewhere without the same type of loan. Was the spokesperson given no questions during the announcement?

If you people all hate Urban so much why do you keep re-electing him? Same with Sally in Richmond...a 27% vote turn-out and it just happens that 27% were all her fans! Now the other 73% are pissing & moaning about her. I don't suppose you sub-Urbanites actually voted against him, did you? Couldn't pass the literacy test?

Our mayor has a proven background in entrepreneurship. He has gone above and beyond for this company. Any business venture is going to have risk. In the case of Carbon Motors, no measurable results have been realized, to warrant us continuing our commitment to them. It's time to cut our ties with them, and move forward to our prosperous future.

It is time to kiss these scam artists off. Their blustering is a badly veiled attempt to get more money from the riverboat fund, the city and state. Leaders need to sit thes BS artists down and make them prove beyond doubt that this fugly minivan will be in production when they say it will be before they offer diddly squat. Remember they had to postpone everything because the Fed saw through their PR campaign and saw they were not viable in the marketplace. So Santana Li and Stacey Dean, put up proof or shut up. No one is buying your lies anymore.

The bottom line is this,our Federal Govmt.is in such disarray that any monies spent are at risk,they are still working on the fiscal cliff,and our debt is 17,trillion dollars,so I ask you this?With the way our world is going what is the answer?,Way too many things to account for on here,I will tell you this,when Mr. Stevens Left the house he was renting here in Town,he and his family trashed the place and in order to restore it back to the way it was,it cost the owners 20-25 thousand dollars,now some say sue them,that would be great,but you can't get what they don't have,MONEY.Just cut our loses and move on,Carbon Motors is just a pipe dream.

Well saiid,it is time to flat cut them off..I don't know what the agreement is but I think they should be paying rent and utilities at the very least.As far as the building goes if sold they can negotiate with the new owners.If not sold by a certain date scrap it out..

this deal with the snake oil salesman (cabon motors) has alredy cost the citizen of connersville $$$. Our utilities rates went because of them.Do you think if this other so called interested goast party that wants to buy the building the rates will come down.This admistration should do us all a favor and resign and take Pete Bell with them.

Excuses.........How much space is needed? Other buildings available? How about erecting a new facility or adding to an existing facility? Options are available. No investigation, no creativity is the issue..........

If you read the details they are getting a Chassis already built from another company. They will basically get this and bolt thier stuff on it. Its interesting they make this announcement then head straight to the Persian gulf. some guy named Muhammad will have one of these carjacked in the first week and learn all the technology. A Big Win for a Bold Homeland security company indeed.
