The voters in Aberdeen, SD approved a new TIF District for a new beef packing plant by a 2 to 1 margin yesterday. I had written about the vote a week ago on my blog. Ken Blanchard from Aberdeen wrote this morning about the controversy surrounding this vote. Here is my favorite quote from his blog, "managing growth is hard, but managing decline is horrible."
I’m glad that Aberdeen is going to continue to move forward. It is a wonderful town with a tremendous future.
