Tell me...how many jobs have been added in the past 2 years? I can tell you, very few. Not enough to recover the 2,000 we've already lost.
You didn't answer the question of the loss of the population. But I can tell that its because of no jobs. We've losing more than what's being created. The population is dropping for some reason...the lack of jobs in the area.
Now, about "The Promise". As for the people that moved here to take advantage of it, how many have stayed ? I can tell you again, not many. As of a matter of fact, out of the 10 families that moved into my old neighborhood, only 1 remains. Wonder why ? It's because the parents couldn't find decent paying jobs to remain here and raise a family. When I moved my family & my business out of El Dorado, every one of my employees (except for 2 out of 14) moved with me. And I'm (and my employees) are very happy for it.
But it looks like you're one of those Mayor Rash supporters. The mayor & City Council have done NOTHING to relieve the jobs or population problems. If telling the truth is spin, then I'm guilty. Facts are facts, and you can't change them. But I can back up my information, you just have to do research.
Let me know when good paying jobs, and the population rebounds. I MIGHT consider moving my family & my business back.
Otherwise, keep on drinkin' that Mayor Rash Kool-Aid.
2,000 over 30 years, dumbass. That's not considered a lot.

Ok watch and see how much the city pays these 'investors' for Ritchie gro bldg!!! The old saying the rich get richer will come to mind!!! Oh and why hasn't the city announced the hotel going on that piece of property?? Maybe because they do t want anyone to question why they didn't just pay the 2 million,,, hmmmm
It is very obvious that you don't know what you are talking about . The investors (as you call them) are DONORS who are helping to raise the capital to rebuild downtown and bring jobs to the area. Your 'rich get richer' shows you don't understand how to run a business because that isn't always the case. When you invest in anything it isn't always a sure thing.

Are you always looking for a conspiracy when a group of people get together to try to make this town a better place to work & enjoy? They want people to move here and find jobs too. It is good for business to have MORE people with jobs living here and having something fun to enjoy. At the very least they are trying while you are complaining.

OK dip shit. You obviously don't comprehend what you're reading. What I said was that El Dorado has lost 25% of its population over the last 30 years. I also said that we've lost 2,000 jobs since 2007. Please read a little better before you start foaming at the mouth.

Now, unless you worked in City Hall, or worked closely with the city, I highly doubt you know wat goes on in City Hall. Fortunately, I did and know how El Dorado City Hall works. Can't say I liked what I saw.

I have been critical of the current city administration. As far as I'm concerned, its the most incompetent council (and mayor) I've seen. As long as they act in this manner, I will continue to be as critical as I am now. The only way I see change coming, is to replace the entire council (including the mayor) and replace them with people that really care about the community and see it prosper.

So, unless you know who I am, don't attempt to pass judgement of me. You'll just show how stupid you really are.

Hey dipshit, you have no way of knowing El Dorado has lost 2,000 people since 2007. Census wasn't collected during that year, dumbass. Also, many of the employers you mentioned shut down in the 90s! AND you actually posted "2,000 in the last 30 years." I'll pull it back up, if you still want to refuse acknowledging that you're a dumbass. It's fun for me to continue discrediting any dumbass thought you continue to conjure up. You're free entertainment.

Ok hot shot...You seem to have all the answers and defending the Mayor Rash & the City Council, please answer this...
Why has El Dorado lost 25% of its population in 30 years ?
Why has Pilgrim's Pride, Prescolite, Cooper and Viking Industries decided to get rid of their operations in El Dorado and causing 2,000 jobs to be lost ?

Can't wait for you (or anyone else) to spin this.

Only two out of all the comments on this page aren't you. When are you going to get some self control and stop being crazy? How pathetic is it that you live and breathe for bitching on a website that nobody worth anything cares about?

The voices in my head make me post arguments with myself on this site. I don't know why, but it seems to amuse them. When I was younger, they made me send chain mail letters and make prank phone calls.
