Wondering why

-A A +A

To the editor:
It seems like every other month, we read about South Carolina getting additional industry in the state, which translates to putting people to work. Companies like Boeing, Firestone, gun manufacturers from Connecticut, a calling center, BMW and other corporations are looking to relocate.
What I am not seeing is news that some of these companies want to relocate in North Carolina, especially in Brunswick County.
Looking at a map of Brunswick County, you can see about two-thirds of the land is empty. This is land that could be developed and provide jobs for Brunswick County residents. I feel that we are not aggressively seeking out corporations and industries to come to Brunswick County. So again I ask, “Why?”
