Letter: Thanks to those who helped haul in Toyota

Published 12:00 am Friday, February 2, 2007

Thanks to all the people that worked behind the scenes to bring the very important Toyota Racing Development shop to Rowan County. It will mean so very much to our county’s tax base.

My thanks go out to Jon Barber, Chad Mitchell and Arnold Chamberlain.

I am a registered Democrat, and believe it or not, I voted for Jon Barber and Chad Mitchell. Rowan County is lucky that these three fine people voted the way they did.

Dr. Douglas Anderson’s Jan. 19 letter to the editor, “Scary thinking from county commission,” is right on target. Incentives are the way counties have vied to bring business into the community.

One commissioner was saying that Rowan County people would not get the jobs. This could be true. Jobs are given to those who best qualify, whether they come from Rowan, Davidson, Cabarrus, Iredell and Davie counties.

My advice to the three “yes” voters is to hang in there and keep up the good work for the folks of Rowan County.

I liked Chad’s comment about Toyota’s not a fish but a whale; also, Jon’s comment about bringing us more Toyotas.
