Any Amazon deal should require Western Massachusetts investment, says head of Economic Development Council
Any Amazon tax and infrastructure incentive package from Massachusetts should require the internet retailing giant to make some investment in the western part of the state, says Richard K. Sullivan Jr., president and CEO of the Economic Development Council of Western Massachusetts. "So its not all about Suffolk Downs or about any of these other sites that are being discussed," Sullivan said Thursday in an interview. "It is a way to make sure there is some benefit from this project in Western Massachusetts. And you know what? it doesn't cost (the state) a thing."
