Thank you Lauren for such an excellent article. I would say that I hope Magruder reads this article but I know it would make no difference to him. He is only concerned with construction of mass numbers of houses that lead to large purchases of lumber. It doesn't matter to him that those jobs are temporary and attract a transient work force. We need more Phillipses and Carusos and many, many less Magruders!!!
Off subject but still important.....He has even slammed the poor, working people he claims to support and represent in his recent quote in the sour orange. He said "It amazes me that those who pay the least in taxes demand the most voice in how the government spends our money." Way to go Mr. Magruder.

It's good to know that there are some builders "out there" who are still interested in quality rather than quantity. It's no secret that, when large numbers are involved, caring and quality fall by the wayside, and are replaced with only dollar signs.
