Your logic is flat wrong. Where in the City of Wilmington or County of New Hanover's charter does it state that the government is responsible for economic development? A government's resposibility is to protect and serve the people that elected it. If it was sooo profitable to run a convention center, then why didn't a private company finance and build the center themselves? Did PPD need to take City money to build? Did the hospital use public money to expand? Did the Hilton use tax money to renovate? Private investment for private enterprise. I am not against the idea of a Convention Center, or an "Alltel Pavillion" type of concert hall, but I am against tax money paying for them.
