Many who have read the AP report and conclude a back room deal. The real back deal here is who in NC government researched this issue, then turned it into something dirty and handed it off ot AP so their filthy hands wouldnt be on this matter. If you know anything about business recruiting then you realize that all aspects of a deal are done in a strict confidencial manner. In the end its not the state picking a site.There were some 59 original sites under consideration in the southeast. The site is being bought by the company and their are so many factors related to a sight selection. The company could give a damn who ownes the peroperty. Schools,hospitals,quality of life, services,access, ect. all must fit around a companies needs in a site selection process. The owners of the land are democrats and they contribute to many democratic causes.So what? Who owns the the land in SC? The state house is Republican rule in SC so I quess the SC land must be owned by? The stated sale price of the tract in Brunswick was $3,800.00 per acre. After taxes, site evaluation, Industrial impact studies surveys, ect the owners selling at $5,800 per acre were not getting rich on this deal. Split five ways each investor would have gained less than $200,000 not millions. I am amazed how well some people read to be so poor at math. In the end what Rep. Hill said is fact, SC wins NC loses,1,500 good paying,stong benefit jobs. The investment est. was over one billion and the annual payroll would exceed $63,000,000.00. Lets hope Sen. Berger wakes up sooner rather than later.
