Iron Man Moving

Intead of Iron Man resuming filming in NC for a month the are staying in Florida because NC lawmakers would not gurantee the incentive. Also Captain America is gone because the NC legislature could not commit. It is gone to Ohio because unlike NC they could guarantee an incentive After this news spread, film will flee like it did 5 years ago and thousand will be unemployed and the other local businesses like retail, restuarants and others will no longer enjoy the benefits or the state from the money it in receives in sales tax. Dont worry our general assembly would rather pay unemployment benefits. For example the $250k Iron Man spent at a furniture store in Wilmington. So go ahead and support new businesses that pollute the enviorment like Titan Cement. I am sure the John Locke foundation is supportive of that. Ted Davis, Susie Hamilton, Carolyn Justic, Thom Goolsby and Bill Saffo should start representing the people that elected them and start fighting for us instead of giving up without a fight!!

And nothing else coming in!

With the film incentives in doubt due to the Republicans, productions are wary of coming in only to have the welcome mat yanked out from under them.

At least Wilmington will have a $40 million baseball stadium to look forward to!

Yes, thanks to all our reps

Yes, thanks to all our reps from the general assembly and our city council for standing up and fighting for Wilmington. Maybe when your unemployed the baseball stadium will employ you! Not to mention the increase in property taxes to pay for it! If the Wilming City Council fought as hard for the film community then we maybe Captain America would be filming in Wilmington. Way to go elected officials!!
