The Golden LEAF Foundation has pledged $50 million toward development of the Randolph County megasite. Earlier this week, the countuy’s Board of Commissioners voted to spend $4.1 million to purchase land that would be part of the megasite.
Hey why shouldn’t Golden LEAF pony up, given the pot of money they’ve been sitting on these many years. Not sure however how the megasite can fit into JLF chair John Hood’s earlier Resse’s Peanut Butter Cup analogy –chocolate and peanut butter, Golden LEAF and Global TransPark. Problem is those two have been “two of the worst tastes in North Carolina government over the past two decades.
