2 million dollars for 24 employees...wow Dick...what a great economic boost to Grand Rapids that would be. Also...a 7 story building for 24 employees...wow again...3 employees per floor...of course a couple floors would have to have 4 employees. I'll bet there will be a heliport on the roof though.

Devos does more good for the state in one day than Granholm could do in a life time.

Imagine the tax dollars he would be dishing out if he was elected Govenor. This is exactly why I bit off my nose to spite my face and voted for the lesser of two evils in Granholm. She is horrible but he is catastrophic for our state.

I'd like to, err... "redevelop" my house. Can I get a tax credit?

Well, in light of recent events you would have all been happy if there were a heliport for the hospital to use (but there currently is not one), I'm quite sure none of you would have objected if Mr. Devos had offered his heliport (if it was approved) as an option for the Hospital,being closer in proximity than the Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

You might want to re think your opinions and judgements. When there is a disater we seem to need people who have means.

He hasn't moved out of state....yet. ;)

Give him the money as long as he doesn't put his name on another building downtown. Maybe the "GR Taxpayers Building"?

DeVos = Scamway/Quixtar = Fraud.
The DeVos's are crooks and should be in prison for running the greatest consumer fraud in global history. They made their fortune through their pyramid scam at the expense of the people they ripped off.

Yeah...actually both Democrats and Republicans love to give away OUR tax dollars. Democrats give it to "social" issues...Republicans give it to "business" needs. I would like to keep more of my money let everyone else keep more of theirs as well. That is why I vote Libertarian. Both Democrats and Rebublicans are theives.

What people like you don't realize is that it is NOT the Governors fault that Michigan is in such a terrible economic state!
The only jobs DeVos brings into the state are scab wages!
DeVos wants the $2 million tax credit for HIS investment group and HIS son's!(read the article) Him & his family are scum of the earth! They do not care about us working people!
