not good for who?

Ted, before you speak for me and my children you need to understand that I have lived in NC all my life and I have seen and been a victim of business and industry leaving because of the State's failing infrastructure. I have also had rising insurance and property taxes that one could attribute to lower receipt of revenues as business and industry has left. The goverment has to get revenue from somewhere, when there is no business for tax revenue then us citizens have to pay up. As my children grow and look to start their own families I would hate to see them have to leave this area or NC because there are no good jobs for them to support their families. I would ask that you consider that added tax revenues from business growth due to the new port may help lower our own property and state taxes. A successful port will help improve our roads and access out of the area if we ever had to evacuate for storms or the nuclear plant. Lower taxes and better routes in and out can only benefit the community at large. People need to stop thinking only about their own personal views and take into account the overall good of all citizens.
