Dick Domann: Tax breaks fuel ecocomy

Tax breaks fuel economy

Regarding The N&O’s slanted view on tax breaks for new businesses in North Carolina (“Where did the $1 billion go?” April 28): I find it interesting that your paper positions incentives for new companies coming into North Carolina as bad. Especially when you refer to the new companies coming to Cary and Charlotte while forgetting about all the underserved cities.

Growing areas should be sites for investment, and it is hoped that other cities will follow. Later in the piece you tout how the cigarette incentives for a Reynolds plant in Forsyth County are bad too. It seems that these companies supply jobs for the citizens of this state who in turn spend their hard-earned dollars on local goods and services, the process which makes our state's economy run.

Stop trying to live in the entitlement past and get with the future of North Carolina.
