Where Government Gets Exposed

Lexington Pats Itself on the Back over Amazon

Lexington County Councilman Jimmy Jeffcoat says during a recent county council meeting that Amazon.com received one of the smallest incentives packages the county has ever given to a company of that size.

Jeffcoat takes the occasion to sing Amazon’s praises, going on to say that not only will Amazon be bringing 2,000 jobs to Lexington County but an additional 4,500 spinoff jobs.
