WOW a total of 42 million dollars of the "people's money?

I can't wait to get some real details on this. 42 million dollars is a large chunk of change. I hope there are some big time strings attached to that money.

I am in no way against incentives as long as they benefit the surrounding community. The commissioners need to make sure that the investments being made by the recipients of the incentives is turned back to Davidson County. I know that the entire construction of Dell went to firms and suppliers outside of Forsyth County. If the county is going to give incentives, they need to insist that in all cases possible, Davidson county firms and suppliers will be used, not bring in workers and supplies from other states and counties.

I'm with you "Frustrated".

Keep it local...from workers to suppliers.
Keep it as local as possible at all times.
