Mississippi Crony Capitalism Thrives In Greensboro

Recently we learned that the Piedmont Triad's leading economic development agency hired the top 2 clowns from the state economic development agency in Mississippi-- the state with the worst economy of all-- to run economic development in the Piedmont.
Recently the News & Record reported:
"The Randolph County Economic Development Corp. said this week that the logo, whose tag is “Thrive in the Heart of North Carolina,” was designed by a Mississippi economic development marketing company."
So let me get this straight, the folks in charge hire 2 guys from Mississippi to run our local economic development organization and their first order of business is to hire "a Mississippi economic development marketing company." aka advertising company, when Greensboro and the Piedmont Triad is full of marketing, advertising and graphics companies.

These guys and the people who hired them should be tarred and feathered then run out of town on a rail.
