So the 500 million dollars of economic expansion that we've had at our plants here in town when most of the rest of the economy is in the crapper is nothing? There are a lot of good jobs here... Corning, Hitachi, Wassau. Computer science jobs, engineering, health care.<quoted text>
My dear old man or woman whichever it may be:
You have only to look around to see that there is a problem of antiquity in Harrodsburg. No, the planning and zoning commission has not turned down a business. That is not the problem. Our leadership, and I am talking about the underground leadership that pulls a lot of strings in Harrodsburg, is committed to keeping this community a tourist trap. They set up a restaurant tax so that the tourist trade could be heavily financed. We have nothing modern. We have nothing to keep our young people interested in and very little to bring them back after they finish college. Harrodsburg is stagnant and it is designed that way.
I love industry jobs. I love tourism money. We have both.
I guess I just don't see the stagnation you are talking about?
If you'd like something modern, build it. I just don't see how any sane person can look at our industry and say we're behind the times?
