    We could have asked to see how the numbers really work had Wilco officials and the city of Taylor given adequate public notice. Their September 8 Joint Meeting was a dog and pony show. They gave a total of 10 minutes for public comment. No matter how many people showed up, they would only take 10 minutes of total testimony. This should tell you everything you need to know in addition to the 90% tax abatements for 20 years by Williamson County. The City of Taylor agreement gives 90% abatements for 30 years. How this all really adds up — in real numbers — was never provided to citizens.

    I hope Samsung makes good money from there.

    Williamson County officials gave citizens no real chance to weigh in on this massive subsidy — like how about 3 days notice for 90% property tax abatements for 10 years, followed by 85% tax abatements for a second 10 year term. Who picks up the tab? Local taxpayers who are already struggling with skyrocketing property taxes. Then, there’s the water problem.This must come out and politicos must be shown the door.

    Is Texas going to have first dibs on the chips? How much are they going to be paying their employees? Are they offering benefits? How many jobs are going to be provided by this?
    Samsung just said the reason they chose Texas was because it was the best deal for *them* .

    To bad they made prostitution illegal in Texas or would be a great place to live. This is what amazes me about America, as an American who lives in Seoul. Seoul is just one big red light district filled with businesses, restaurants, and bordello’s and so on. I am not sure why America has a purity test. You have preachers driving Ferrari’s but somehow a businessman going to a brothel is somehow sanctimonious. I guess this is why I left America all the hypocrisy. South Korea is one of the safest countries in the world, so the argument that it leads to crime is an outright lie similar to Singapore a big red light district with all the same attributes but extremely safe. It can’t be a moral issue, I had a family friend who just died of cancer in Texas after his diagnosis he applied for state Medicaid and was denied and by the time Medicare kicked in the cancer spread, so Texas killed this man by not allowing him to get treatment through Medicaid. For all who doubt this statement google Texas Medicaid requirements and being indigent with a cancer diagnosis is not a qualifying factor to get on Medicaid.

    Give it few years and eventually most of the jobs will be filled by illegal immigrants. That is the reality for 1000’s of manufacturing plants.

    Worthless Gregg also announced that as winter gets closer he will engage his AWOL mode. 10 months have passed since the winter storms that took the lives of 211 innocent Texans who while Gregg was AWOL and comfy at home froze to death and to this day “taking credit for doing nothing” Gregg hasn’t lift a finger to alleviate the problems of an outdated power grid system that goes down every time someone coughs.

    Taylor TX, 1933 lynching of Caldwell Washington 23yrs old disappeared from his job after a dispute with a white coworker. Two months later his decomposing body was found hanging from a tree. The law claimed sucide to protect the white man and hide their sin. Source: Fox7Austin, 4/5/18.
