4. Unemployment to decrease
5. More diversification in the CLT economy, I would like for more biomed research, larger defense contracts, things of the sort
6. A statement saying Trump commited to the 70+ story tower (I know this is a long shot)
7. CLT to get more funding from the state, Perdue we're watching you!

I think I'm out of ideas for now, oh yeah, West Charlotte HS to win state in basketball, gotta support my alma mater.
Nice list, ADAVI. I like #6 - we ought to dredge that up again and see what we can find out about those plans . . . where it all stands right now . . .

Perdue said she was gonna open an office in Charlotte. Kinda funny that since she won the election...not a word has ever been mentioned. She is a liar & a JOKE!

If you go to their website, Trump Charlotte , they have actually made some updates since it was originally announced as put on hold. At least I tell myself this is a good sign.

HEE HEE HEE. You have a good memory! Yes, he is. But he spent most of his life in KCMO - so we were Royals fans. However, w/ son in CHI - we came to be very fond of the Cubs . . . and since childhood, I have been a . . . (gulp) YANKEES FAN!!!!!

I hope it is a good sign, too. Should be interesting to see how this unfolds.

I checked out the link. It will be very interesting. It seems, at least from the website, that it will be a go. We shall soon see.

Trust me. I have taken much abuse for this penchant over the years.

I should add: My grandfather was a Yankees fan, so some of my earliest memories are of sitting on his lap, listening to baseball on the radio . . . so that is where this all got started . . .
