Jeez, I'm always amazed at the hypocrisy of local politicians. On the one hand they are praising and encouraging small businesses like food trucks and on the other raving how an Amazon warehouse will save the area. Both are enemies of small business.
Food trucks hardly employ anybody and hardly pay taxes. Politicians fall over themselves to benefit the truck owners.
Amazon builds a warehouse enabling same day or next day delivery to the masses to the detriment of small businesses. Economic Development director says "No business operates on an island, they are all purchasing from each other." Ha. Amazon is going to buy locally? How ignorant can you be Dave Bullock?
I'm an Amazon customer, but I don't kid myself into thinking they aren't killing the tradition retail store.
