No Port Southport

One can only hope that there is a follow up article concerning what was said at the No Port Southport meeting on 1/22. Such an article would reveal that multiple studies of container ports around the country have shown that the local area DOES NOT benefit economically from the presence of a port. In fact, the local area suffers declines in employment, income and real estate values. In addition, studies done at UNC-W show that the economic basis on which the NC Ports Authority has built their case for the port are unfounded. So all of you hoping that a port would be a boon to south east Brunswick county will be sadly mistaken. Not only won't there be many new jobs, the environment will be severely degraded. Don't be taken in by the bogus comments from the Ports Authority about thousands of new jobs, they won't be there...
