On the agenda for the 11 April meeting is a request for the city commission to approve two signs that the MEDC wants to put on the road which brackets an unnamed food processing company where the MEDC claims it created 91 jobs in Kentwood
I’m going to vote no. The MEDC has claimed the creation of 150,000 jobs in Michigan over the decade, but only about 13,000 actually materialized (Mlive.) In a more recent report, they claimed that 75% of the jobs that they had arranged were in place. An audit found only 19% existed.
I’d vote to let them put up their signs if the MEDC signs said something like, “We scam job creation” or similar truths.
