Amazon has said no to Iowa as a potential place for its HQ2 and with that rejection, I think we should know how big of a legal bribe we offered and what we spent on any pitch when we knew in advance that we did not qualify based on the published criteria.
We STILL don't know for example, what we offered Toyota in our failed attemnpt to bring them to the State.
These things must not happen behind closed doors, but they continue to do so.
Ask your legislators for an accounting!
The top 20 cities Amazon is considering are as follows:
- Austin, Texas
- Columbus, Ohio
- Los Angeles
- Montgomery County, Md.
- Nashville, Tenn.
- Newark, N.J.
- New York City
- Northern Virginia
- Raleigh, N.C.
- Washington, D.C.
