MarkN: Mill Jobs Better Than Tax Breaks For Developers

re: DeArmond Mill closure

It seems that lots of folks are very excited about getting that very valuable land and forgetting about the jobs that are being lost. We make lots of noise about affordable housing and good jobs. The fact is we give tax breaks to developers who either tear down affordable housing for condos or rejoice over land they can get that used to provide jobs for generations of Idahoans. I mourn the loss of DeArmond/Stimson. I used to work there. My heart goes out to those who are losing their jobs. I wish the CDA council cared as much/Mark Normington
