lol... public hearing..... must be part of the formality...... I will bet you a dollar the corporate beggars will get every penny in tax breaks they ask for......come on now, has the gcedc ever said no to the corporate panhandlers ? if these companies need capital then do what the taxpayer does, go to the bank and take out a loan. the part that makes me sick is the company big wigs drive around in fancy cars wearing a three piece suit. driving that car to the nice big house, all light up at night, inground pool, concrete driveway, the whole shabang. then ask me to help support his business. NO NO and NO.
