DEAD LAST

Mid term elections will again bring up all the advantages of the Baldwin County . Politicians, county commissioners and their hacks, all on board with the annual round of promises that the , will soon pay off. Never mind that this is the same story since the purchase in mid 2011.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

In 2012 the Baldwin County Commission convinced itself that Baldwin County needed to spend 32 Million dollars on 2300 usable acres called the . South Alabama – Shovel Ready in…

This is a 32 million dollar investment with tens of millions of lost opportunity. The county commission still has the original sign advertising the project. That sign is now faded as the promises of the commission have faded.

We are told we came in second and almost won a car manufacturing plant, BS. We never even came close.

South Alabama dangled its own megasite to Toyota and Mazda, but came up short

The South Alabama megasite was in the running for the Toyota and Mazda plant that wound up landing in Limestone County. Coastal Alabama officials now say they feel that their megasite is next in line to land a large-scale developer.

Perhaps it’s not the best way to eliminate the competition, but Lee Lawson of the Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance says the South Alabama is the only one left in the state. All the others have landed businesses.

“We’re now the only certified in the entire state of Alabama and we sit ready for the next opportunity,” Lawson said.

You talk about spin! This is classic, we the citizens of Baldwin County, after investing 32 million, are now being told there are no s in Alabama left except the one in Baldwin County. So we are dead last, but the only choice? That is one hell of a sales pitch.

Truth of the matter is the same county commission and the Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance want you to bend over one more time and put the same damn commissioners back in office. Vote the incumbents out and stand up straight.

The Baldwin County Economic Alliance had the same sales pitch for the and the results are the same, DEAD LAST.

What a boondoggle! Who owned the land? Were the kickbacks in cash, houses or other forms of real estate or liquidities? If y’all only knew how crooked this county is. In fact, I think most of the outsiders considering BC see exactly how messed up the place is. It ain’t right for business.

All anyone has to do is look at the murder rate. Baldwin county has had more murders since October 2016, than the previous decade combined. Direct result of Law Enforcement (Hoss) having a policy of not wanting to deal and let’s sabatage the last DA! Expect more… this lawlessness has been brewing for years!

Aunt Pittypat

Maybe you should mention the previous owners of the land and all involved in the acquisition of this land. I think there is more to this story than the Commissioners buying this particular track of land! Welcome to Baldwin County!!

I have several thoughts on this.
Last thought is that leaving a weathered for sale sign is poor salesmanship and shows you don’t care much.
Middle thought is that this property was way too expensive and you wonder if there is under the table money and I don’t mean chump change.
First thought is almost every time the (county) government gets involved in what should be private business/development it ends poorly.
Some of the things people gripe about her don’t seem that big a deal. This is.

Trip is not finished. He has more to slowly screw.
Think guvnah.

The Sigh!!!!

Can you imagine what the company representatives thought when they pulled up to inspect the property for the possibility of building a plant and saw the weather worn sign. They now have have the same impression of what all of people in Baldwin County are like. I wouldn’t do business with anyone that doesn’t have the decency of having things looking in tip top shape!

RIPP REPORT

Absolutely

Baldwin County WOW!

If my calculations are correct. We paid approx $14,000 an acre way back in 2011. $32 million dollars for what? It wasn’t even appraised for half that????? I heard that President Trump made a comment about some countries being shitholes. Hell, Trump must have been thinking about our Baldwin County Commissioners and the dumbasses they are for making such a purchase. To think of DUI county Commissioner Chris Elliot running for State Senate along with approving this purchase, would make someone wonder why he himself hasn’t already walked out in the woods and kept on walking while allowing us to rid himself of his bullshit. Tucker Dorsey is just a lying, bible thumping hypocrite that everyone unfortunately had finally figured out, but not soon enough how STUPID and Ignorant drunken human being that he is and always has been. Tucker Dorsey, you will not win another term!!! Ask anybody that isn’t kissing you ass willingly. We haven’t been wrong in the last seceral years of political races and you won’t be the first incorrect result. Frank Burt, by his choice, should have lead himself out of Baldwin County on his own without the walker he has to use. Disgraceful human… Read more »

Great post. JB has two condos and a cigarette boat.

In police circles this is known as a CLUE.

Get one.

I feel like the entire county commission is corrupt. They are all in it together.

Who ever selected and approved the “SITE” are worse real estate professionals than they are politicians. And that’s saying something.
Vote Out Professional Politicians

700 acres of the site can not be developed

Hunter tracks

This was a rim job for sure. Somebody’s gots paids.

Sandyford

Some good new blood running Ripp. I hope you give em a fair shake!

Throw out incumbents and reject Catalyst candidates

Turkeyfat

Sorry man i cannot vote for jeb ball. He is crooked with the court racket run by the judges. Ill stick with Bert.

Turkey ignorance

Do you mean Burt instead of Bert. Hell, you can’t even spell TurkeyFat. That’s probably the situation with a lot of Baldwin County citizens. Small percentage of people who care putting in the same peole over and over again. NOT anymore!!! PEOPLE!!! Take the time to learn who these people are, what they are doing to our County. You might be referring to the puppets, Bert and Ernie. Typical TurkeyFat.

Burt or Catalyst ? flip a coin

Better

We will all give a fair shake to those who deserve it. Our group will and I’m sure Ripp will too. Chucky of course is still trying to find out if he has a love life or if he is disappointed that Jack Burrell has kicked him out of bed. Guess Chucky can’t keep a woman or a man. He said once you had Jack, you never can go back. Maybe Jack Burrell will explain to his blind church associates that him and Chucky are in bed together.

Great political name.
