Placeholder Image
Commissioner Herschel Wells, chairman of the county’s Budget and Finance Committee, has changed his mind and made a motion asking the committee to give the Industrial Development Board the $250,000 it requested.Commissioner Michael Martin was not happy about this proposal and said to Wells, “You hollered at the last meeting you didn’t want to give them $250,000. You’ve changed your mind.”“I did that just to get their attention. I think we got their attention,” Wells responded.Wells was vocal at a previous meeting about not funding the IDB as long as Jeff McCormick is the industrial recruiter.
