More Jobs that will Not Come to Camden County.

November 16, 2010

What is it going to take?

What is it going to take for our county and legislative leaders to attract new investment into Camden County?

Case in point:   Last week, Rutherford County, NC officials announced a $450 million dollar investment by Facebook that will create 250 UNION TRADE LABOR jobs over the next 18 months, and more than 45 permanent jobs.  For the record, Rutherford County is one tenth the population of Camden County.  The Facebook investment is the latest of a series of investments into that region this year from other notable companies: Apple, Google and American Express. 

The next time you use Facebook, chances are all of the information you are seeing, storing and posting resides on a computer in Rutherford County, NC.  The question you should be asking: Where was Camden County’s proposal to attract Facebook?

Lastly, to tie it all together, read the October 17th Courier Post Op-Ed article on economic development by Scot DeCristofaro and judge for yourself who continues to have the vision for building up Camden County.    One can only wonder about the jobs and economic development that come to Camden county if our elected officials were focused on the needs of the residents. 

Special thanks to Scot Decristofaro who contirbuted to this post.

    There have been a series of articles, news and facts in the past 2 weeks that clearly exposes the Camden County Democrat machine for what they are: empty, void and selfish.
