I watched that video, and a new aspect hit me, what the answer is I haven't figured out yet.LA State Rep. Cedric Glover expressed his doubts in a severe manner the day before yesterday: “You have had eight years to give birth to this baby,” Glover told Elio. “Your idea, your concept, your vision should not come at the expense of a multi-billion dollar facility that could cost this city thousands of jobs.” http://www.shreveporttimes.com/stor...ives-demand-answers-gm-plant-delays/92728208/
Let's have the ATVM loan, shall we?
So Caddo Parrish has this big empty plant; Racers Trust comes along and promises to develop it into something, or the other option is to tear it down.
Let's set EM and the rest of the building to the side for a moment.
So what does Caddo get if they tear it down? They don't really need the space, there is a lot of open space around the plant that other businesses could be developing, but their not.
So why are they putting the pressure on Elio? Well in the video, they open with saying "Elio is just a pawn in this situation".
Why do they want to put this much pressure on a pawn in a series of promises that they made to Elio's Landlord?
It's not like Elio being there is keeping other manufacturers out; they already admitted that the other deals they had all fell through.
So they chase EM out, and then what? Tear down a building that no one else wants? What did they have planned for that spot?
Like I started out, I have no answers for these questions at this point, but what is Caddo Parrish not telling us?
