Wal-Mart in Tarpon Springs

Let me be one of the first to welcome Wal-Mart and its 240-250 THATS 240-250 JOBS to Tarpon Springs. DESPITE the best efforts of some of the Luddites of Tarpon Springs to include a number of Barons of the Bayou aka City Commissioners to stymie progress and in particular Wal-mart we now have increased our tax base; provided inexpensive shopping for residents; created needed competition for Publix, Sweet Bay and other stores. All without tax payer money.
Let's see if the $100,000 a year Tarpon Springs City Business Development Specialist can do half as well WITH tax payer money.
Remember that the origianlly planned Wal-Mart Supercenter on the commerical corridor of US HWY 19 which our City rulers effectively prevented from construction would have created 450 jobs.
