It appears that the Jacksonville City council has just lured away one of the few high tech civilian companies in St. Marys. The referenced article said we will be losing 31 jobs with an average salary over 100K per year. I have to wonder if any of the local city council members even knew that this company existed!

St. Mary's records on existing businesses in the city is pitiful. I went to City Planning the find out who owns a business on the St. Marys side of Kings Bay Road, and they did not have the names of the owners on record.

I wondered how St. Marys could be collecting taxes from a business that they did not know the owners.

They likely did not know of Corys Thunder.

David Keating of the JDA probably does not, either.

Imagine that. I'm sure the Thunder folks looked around at the local leadership and talent pool and decided that nothing useful or noteworthy will ever happen here until all the local GOBs get bred out, the Yankees quit coming and Rollerboy wheels off to his just desserts in the sky.

The deal would create 35 jobs at an average salary of $107,133.
Of the jobs, 31 will relocate from St. Marys and four will be created.
Corys Thunder proposes to invest $450,000, comprising $400,000 in leasehold improvements and $50,000 in machinery and equipment.

Not only is Keating and the JDA incompetent but what about our St. Marys Economic Development director who is payed 100K plus.

How are the Gals over at the tribune going to handle this?

The GOBs will not bred out; they are still breeding (inbreeding)? The Yankees coming down are old and retired and have stopped breeding. The GOBs will continue to inbreed and continue to win by overwhelming numbers. Eventually the gene pool will self distruct and Kamden Kounty will slip back into the stone age. Bad news, get out while you can.

The Chamber of Commerce apparently told the Gals over at the Tribune to just ignore the great business exodus of St. Marys.

Shut down the Chamber of Commerce, the JDA and all these "development" organisations in Camden County and take the saved money to pay-off the water and sewer system!

In some places getting a job is all about retirement.

Can't help wondering where the Tribune, City Council and County Commissioners were on this issue.

This one appears to be a done deal, but there are a pant load of firearms/outdoor related industries looking to move out of Colorado. Is our much vaunted JDA courting these folks?

Has the Gals over at the Chamber of Commerce given the green light to the Gals at the Tribune to at least print a paragraph on the bottom of page 8?

The City Council will have to hire a consultant and conduct a study before commenting.

It was probably the incompetence of Keating and the JDA that caused Corys Thunder to pack up and leave, if not the never ending splosts taxes.

My limited investigation found the company looking for about $.25 million for expansion and some special deal on property. Jacksonville seems to have deep enough pockets to accommodate them.

It will be interesting to see what the JDA did to entice them to stay.(if anything)

I recall Keating and the JDA falling over backwards for the solar/AC outfit. I wounder if that whole group wound up doing time?

Stay tuned I'm sure we will be reading all about it this week in the Tribune.

Maybe the city should have invested $0.25 million in Rolling Thunder instead of wasting $1.3 million on the Gilman boat house property.

The Tribune reports that JDA director Keating, St. Marys economic developer Jones and some clown from Ga. Met with CIT..... LAST WEEK!!!

3 MILLION payroll gone.

Keating with his over 90k salary was unavailable for comment. Don't think they even bothered getting a comment from worthless Artie Jones with matching salary.

Jacksonville has attracted Embry Air to it's city. I can assume their location to be close to Cory's Thunder. (Airport Complex) Jax is just a busy city.

3 million payroll, how did you arrive at that? From what I read, in order for Cory to remain here, St Marys would have to make some concessions which would never equal the payroll benefits of this city.
St Marys may have made a smart move by letting this company go.

Go to page 6A of todays Tribune.

Please provide your reading source defending CSI leaving St. Marys.

Why wasn't CSI interviewed? Another example why the chamber of commerce exists soley for raising taxes and back slapping.
