Nobody turned down industry. The EEDB said they weren't prepared to give a half million dollars to a startup whose business plan didn't match the figures given in the pitch to the board. That doesn't mean the city, county and chamber weren't working to help the company. They were. But apparently he couldn't make the project work with $500,000 in public money.

That's a lot of required local capital with the very few jobs it would've brought in.

That is a downright lie. Did you even read the article? Check out the other thread I made about it. Or better yet, I'll post my comments for you.

Poor Mr. Loftin. He even quoted "I did not want to leave El Dorado, but it felt like my own people didn't want me".

Then Hash makes some total bullsh*t excuse about how the EEDB needs to do a "mid course exam" to see if if there is anything that they are possibly overlooking that they need to intensely examine, because its a tough environment out there.

Wow, ya think? At least Hash made a half-ass attempt to acknowledge they are clearly failing.

Hash spent a little over $2,000.00 to get elected. His largest supporter was R. "Bubba" Long with $500.00. As I remember the article in the paper, the Dr.'s wife had around $90,000.00 available though she did not spend that much. An Alderson family friend told me that Edwin got the former hospital administrator to run because the Mason backed Dr.'s wife was too radical. I think the former hospital administrator ( Twink Sr.?) spent a little over $40,000.00 running four races ( primary, run off, general, run off ) in one year. I don't remember what Glosson and the young white dude spent.

One thing has always been clear to me FRANK HASH is a damn joke on the image of Eldorado. But of course the people have elected a lot of idiots in the past few years.

El Dorado will be stuck in the mud without some good leadership.

The boat plant, well you can look at it two ways...

First, IF the boat plant is still in business after the first year, then you can say that the EEDB made a good choice.

Second, you can blame the EEDB for making the bone-headed decision to let the boat plant go to Fordyce should it survive the first year.

Choose saides if you wish.

As for Hash, the News-Times said it best a couple of years ago when Sara Mitchell called Hash "The Accidental Mayor". The only reason Hash is mayor is that the voters didn't want Luther Lewis as mayor. Looks like Hash is the one who needs the "mid course exam", and he'll fail miserably.

Vote his ass out along with the rest of the council.

You can tell reading all these comments that it is the same person posting all of them. Kinda childish/moronish. How can one subject that is done and over with amuse anyone? Somebody who has nothing to do but repeatedly make useless comments does not have a life at all. Are you an invalid with a physical confinement to residence? If so are you under a mental watch as well by a parent or guardian? Restrictions such as this will quiet often bring on non essential substance such as your comments.

When somebody wants government money to start a business that means he has no backers or money of his own, maybe he should have went to Smackover where the last boat plant that went out of buisness was located.

The too legit Glosson family. His 5 years of driving a bus for the Strong School District allowed him the opportunity to retire early and lobby for his personal self interests.

That is the exact problem with all of this. When did business startups become dependent on PUBLIC MONEY? The whole idea of a capitalistic society is taking risks, not passing them on to the public. If this guy needs a loan, go to the bank.

Oh, that's right...the lack of private lending due to government generousity led to banks lowering loan requirements, which led to a housing bubble. Which has led to the current mess that we're in. If he knew that the bank wouldn't finance him, then a 15-minute decision by an incompetent Fordyce council will provide what that desperate town deserves. You stay classy, El Dorado.
