This segment is called Think About It.
This week, it ought to be called THINKING REALLY BIG ABOUT IT!
I am talking about Pima County and its big push to add its name – to the long list of locations coast to coast -- that Amazon might consider as a place to plant a second headquarters.
Immediately – what comes to mind – for a lot of us is the number of jobs that could come with such a facility. Best guess estimates put that number at around 50,000.
The other thing that comes to mind – is the list of incentives the county would put up to turn Amazon’s head.
One county leader told the Arizona Daily Star – that actually beating out the other 200 or so cities is probably a long shot. And I agree with him – when he suggest maybe WINNING Amazon isn’t the end game. But going through the process and thinking big – is a good dry run for future opportunities to grow our local economy.
