Good Business News for Greensboro!

Robert Bell at the N&R reports that the Wyndham Championship Golf tournament is close to selling all its corporate sponsorships.

Why do we care?

It’s good news when Greensboro figures prominently in positive national news stories.  We need good press because the PGA could decide to pull the tournament and head somewhere else.  When we look like we have money, we attract money, without having to bribe businesses with incentives. 

When NEW business is created or locates here, that actually aids long-term job growth  for our citizens (unlike government “stimulus” , which may redistribute money for temporary work on a “shovel ready” project, but does not actually create real jobs that ADD to our local economy).
