Letter to the editor: Why are officials giving GRE a $300,000 grant?
Published 04/22/2009, The Jamestown Sun
I was truly disheartened to learn about approval of the gift of $300,000 by the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. for a jobs incentive grant for Great River Energy. Why do we continue to give away taxpayer money to companies that have billions of dollars’ worth of assets? I’m sure the business plan that GRE is working with is planning to hire people to run the $356 million power plant.Word count: 345
