Not sure how much you can blame Boucher for Lebanon's greedy real estate market. There's been a lot of talk on it here already, google up some threads on it if you are that interested.

I have to think the 800 or so people working at CGI and NG have been a positive for Lebanon and SWVA as a whole, even if most of them live in Abingdon, that's still helping the SWVA economy overall.

How does this story stay on the opening page of the forum?? It only has two comments, seems to me it would go to "the back burner"----------

I pass their autos going to work every morning with TENNESSEE Tags.Some drive from Bristol I guess. Not many of us in their buildings working? Boucher thought he did his part bringing the Call Center to replace the Auto Industry.We have no valuable industry in our area, nothing for simple folk to work at.

Simple poor folks can go back to school on with government money or go to trade schools for free. Stop whining already. Where would all of them people live at anyway. The HUD apartments near the graveyard or the over priced $150k 2 bedroom home that most people have for sell?

Get some education and you can get a job at one of those places. They ain't too many unskilled jobs left, unless you can do them cheaper than some dude in Mexico or China.

I hate to tell you but all those cars you pass every morning from Tennessee are going up to Claypool Hill to the Methadone Clinic. Drive through the parking lot around 8am you will see.

Almost all NG and CGI workers that moved here live in Abingdon. I know a couple from Honaker, a couple from Richlands, a few from Lebanon, and one from Tazewell that work at NG.

I know a ton of people that work at both places and a whole lot of them are from Richlands, Honaker, Lebanon, Clintwood, etc. Not everyone is from Abingdon. What would it matter anyway, Abingdon is still in our district and like only 20 mins away? It's not just for Lebanon you know, it's for our entire district.

I tried getting a job at both places with a 4 year degree and can't get an interview. Oh well, I moved away.
