County doesn’t need new LCEDC headquarters

-A A +A

My, did Tim Boling hit the nail on the head in his letter,  “No need to build new LCEDC  headquarters,” in the July 5, 2013, edition of The Lancaster News. Lancaster County needs a new $700,000 building for the Lancaster County Economic Development headquarters like it does the bubonic plague.
A shiny new building for the economic development team will not attract new industry. Industry comes when its needs are met, and the benefits of our county exceeds the benefits of other communities. Incentives play an important role, along with a very special person who can sell the advantages that our county has to offer.
Our County Council must remember, also, that Lancaster still has 10.6 percent unemployment and many workers have only part-time employment. Our citizens cannot afford another tax increase.
