We'll have to take your word that this so-called TAPster is 1) actually someone that is involved in our blog site here and 2) "spent years working in economic development". Me? Well, I'm betting both of those things are a bit over stated. But, hey, it's a free country and the 1st amendment says you can say anything you want (within reason, of course).
Just my 2 cents here, okay? What if there is an effort going on to get both North and South Carolina working together on economic development in "The Carolinas"? I mean, if I was wanting to do that as a North Carolinian, the first thing I'd probably do is to make an effort to show some friendship and to work with my "partner" South Carolina. Any effort like this has to start with a joint friendship and show of willingness to work together. And, I'd invite the movers and shakers...y'know?
Is that what's happening here? Not sure. But, sure looks like it could be to me.
Again, just my 2 cents. Of course, if someone wants to find a way to just be negative about this event (and anything else republicans are doing in our state), I guess they could just go the way of Gary Pearce here.
