The economy in this area has not improved in the past few years. This project would provide a measurable economic benefit to the entire CSRA. The construction phase would bring high-paying, skilled-labor jobs and the resultant ballpark, restaurants, hotel and retail facilities would bring much-needed service jobs for many affected by the ongoing recession.
Augusta’s loss will be Aiken County’s gain. Do the right thing, Aiken County Council, and approve Project Jackson for the jobs it will bring to our CSRA.
