Re: “Editor's Note: Boycotts begin to hit home

they would rather hire out of state workers anyway - it has to do with the location of the union offices and their callback rules.
(you must certainly know this)

Re: “Georgia HB 83: The Politics of Recess

Whose interests do the State Representatives and Senators represent? Their constituents or the Governor? Weren't members of the Georgia School Board Association students once upon a time or did they just fast forward from the womb to adulthood?

Re: “Editor's Note: Help wanted -- Affordable housing, better transportation

Now those who are supposedly in charge are just discovering the issues of affordable and better housing. This city has catered towards the construction of hotels, luxury apartments and short term vacation rentals. Too few warm bodies apply the available jobs due to starvation wages. Yet the owners are covered like a blanket regarding their health care. Those who work for them have to get their medical care from the emergency room. Only way things will change are political candidates who come from Generation X and the Millennials. The baby boomers and their predecessors have proven to be inept. Savannah just can't afford their type of leadership anymore. They squandered their opportunities to fix the problems.

Re: “Editor's Note: Help wanted -- Affordable housing, better transportation

No mention of the words "gentrification" or "long overdue economic development" (as you term it) as underlying causes of lost housing stock for the service sector. Starlandia Forever, right?

They will (hopefully) move to states which have approved the murder of tiny newborn infants. That meets with the approval of the film crowd.

Re: “Editor's Note: Boycotts begin to hit home

Hollywood boycotts GA because of the "heartbeat" bill. Wailing and lamentations by liberals about their lost show business jobs--the "heartbeat" of Savannah's culture. The irony is delicious.

Re: “Editor's Note: Boycotts begin to hit home

Punishing working class people in Georgia's film industry is a really stupid and ineffective way to protest the law. I would guess most of the people working on films and television are not supporters of the law. Why should they be made to pay for something they did not endorse? It makes no sense.

Re: “Editor's Note: Boycotts begin to hit home

Thank God we have a strong conservative Governor that knows how to represent real southerners here in the Bible Belt. By standing up to sick threats from liberals in Hollyweird with regard to their movies (that most of us don't want here anyway) because we chose to protect life,, is refreshing to say the least.

I just hope that MORE weirdo liberals would stay the heck out of our great State of Georgia and stop trying to ruin it like they do in their home States that are Socialist Tax utopias,, like Venezuela...

Re: “Editor's Note: Boycotts begin to hit home

Jim, we lost a Hugh Jackman movie to New Orleans...6 months project and big budget.,,they start next month. I have 3 family members that could have worked at home....now what will happen is that our family will be spending money there when we go to visit....these decisions are effective in more ways than just one.

Re: “Editor's Note: Hasty Arena decisions could haunt for years

@ K. Bart: Not to worry. They expect people to walk out there, or paddle little boats, or ride bicycles! To that area--at night! Haven't you read about all their pie in the sky fantasies?

Re: “Editor's Note: Hasty Arena decisions could haunt for years

Isn't what Colleen Cunningham posted compatible with the idea behind the new Propel Savannah which supposedly focuses on improving first on what we have here? Repairing and maintaining the infrastructure should be high up on the list of any city - before they build anything else.

residents will not be able to get to the arena. Let's repair first.
