Our state law says no tax money may be given to business or used to support a business--period. It allows giving tax money for the poor only. MADC ignores that. it is favoritism and corporate welfare at our expense.

How did those "dry" dams work 4 u? We won't get sound flood protection and never have because they always sweep it under the rug. It begins when they start digging at the west bypass. They want an event center at the state fair (hostefest) and more stuff like it. It is the ugly history of minot. They refuse to listen to the majority. MADC was mediocre at best and has outlived it's useful life. We have more business than we can handle now. shut er down. don't reward their disgusting, sometimes illegal and always greedy behavior--Vote NO because it is the only hope for change.

The only thing I don't like about the program is how you are eligible or aren't eligible not based on the flood that damaged people but on where you live. People in Ramsey county flooded by Devils Lake-eligible. People in Towner County flooded by Devils Lake-not eligible. People in Burleigh, eligible, people in McLean-not eligible. I realize they didn't want to make it statewide for anything, but the floods were not cooperative and didn't happen based on county lines.
