Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

My guess is that this is one of the first strikes, of many to come, against corporate welfare. The thing is, it only really takes one state to keep the gravy train going. Yeah, New Jersey is already out begging. https://nypost.com/2019/02/11/phil-murphy-wants-amazon-to-consider-moving-hq2-to-newark/

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Mayoral candidates need to be listening. They need to put personal and previous agendas, talking points, aside and really listen to residents from all neighborhoods. The one who does, and reflects that to voters, will probably be the next mayor, I am supportive of downtown development and overall ec...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Amazon still isn’t coming to Missouri as long as we’re a state that discriminates ... That’s not the case here, obviously. But doesn’t the fact that Amazon picked New York and a D.C. suburb in the first place tell you anything, Governor Parson? If not, we will be the ones break it to you: The chanc...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

You are absolutely right. Their attitude towards constituents can cause a loss by just a few votes. They often don't realize this. Long-serving politician staffs say that their candidate often keeps winning (even where their party might be outnumbered) because they are excellent at dealing with cons...
