the sad state of things in wilkes has people like you to blame...if you were on the right track, we would see some growth and improvement. Yes, wilkes is a sleepy little community, but goods and services offered here are sub-par....everything from medical care to restaurant food. Everything here is not only a little older, but less well done, and workers/businesses have no reason to NOT be second or third rate...bc they know this is a sleepy little community with a buffer zone of stagnant economy. We already see brain and skills drain, in which retirees are left behind, far from the medical centers they need and up and coming professionals move away to begin their careers. What happens when these retirees pass away? I guarantee there will not be nearly as many folks who choose wilkes as where they choose to retire.

Amazon confirmed that Raleigh is not the only location they are looking at in NC. It could stretch back to Greensboro...but no further west than that for sure. This would also ruin commute times to the beach for anyone in wilkes! yet another reason to protest

doesnt matter how u vote i got 80% of the county with me going to vote Foxx in and all republican in wilkes races.


u are stupid if you want 50,000 jobs within a one hour commute time. wilkes is a retiree community and those are the people who vote here not the minimum wage young people.

amazon headquarters 2 would mean our roads would be even worse when they wanna visit the mountains or any festivals or stone mountain. i say we keep them roaches away to make for a sleepy community here for retirees!!!

I am a registered Republican, but I will be voting Democrat in November.

Bad as the GOP is, they will always be better than the Democrats. I have been really disappointed with them here in the state and also in Washington. But how do you vote for the open border party of Pelosi and Maxine Waters, and Chuckie Schumer, and Al Sharpton? How in the world do you get to That?

Appstat1994...I have a solution to your personal dilemma. ..Pack yourself up sell your property and MOVE away.. jobs that pay a starting wage of nearly 12.00 an hour with lot of overtime is beneficial topersonal, local, county and state taxes...so you move and you will be okay. ..so will the state of NC...

I encourage everyone to vote republican this November and keeping supporting our Mrs. Foxx! If we need to bring HQ2 into the political spotlight we will! Wilkes County is not the place for outsiders to come in with their lgbtq rights and visit our parks and clean body of water

What?? AppState, you are something.

What ? Allow some company or industry come to Wilkes ? Why they might give our young people and recent WCC graduates a decent place to work..Decent wages and benefits and upset the apple cart ? Really ?

What does an Amazon HQ have directly to do with lgbtq? We could have had Google and for some reason we axed that idea. If you want wilkes to grow, let someone like Amazon, Google, apple set up shop. Let's see some growth

Yeah..Some of them might be immigrants (like your ancestors probably were ?) And as Moron said today and I quote "Immigrants are not people..They're animals"
