I support it. We need to do everything we can to keep Honda anchored here. Who knows what it may lead to. Maybe even a Honda automobile plant in Greensboro in the future.

HondaJet is beyond strong. Triad should consider themselves lucky they based here and should do anything they can to keep them here.
