Yes, Virginia, unlike what you have been lead to believe, jobs actually ARE created without politicians having their pictures taken nearby. It happens all the time.
In fact, most new TN jobs are created without politicians anywhere near to take "credit." George Bush doesn't create jobs, Nancy Pelosi doesn't create jobs, Phil Bredesen doesn't create jobs....they only take credit for them AFTER hard working Tennesseans create them.
The 26-acre site, located next to the Roane Regional Business and Technology Park, was sold in a private land deal that took place without any publicly-funded incentive package.
Crete says tax collections from the site are expected to add about $42,000 a year to Roane County's tax rolls.
