You need someone like a Donald Trump, a no nonsense, tough negotiator to handle these contracts/deals not political hacks.

Seems like the state gets a better return from the incentive dollars from projects in Batesville and/or Independence County than other parts of the state. Maybe those mountain people are just better at planning with a hungrier work force.
Does the state auditors or legislatures look at this when throwing money at a project?
