Look forward? This week General Motors announced the development of an electric car for $30,000.

Do you think charging a car like that in Cape Coral is going to help cost justify the purchase of as vehicle like that.

The only future here is more needless tax to support the business of government which produces NOTHING.

Tell the boys in the housing industry the Capes residential economic job producer things will not get better. Going on 7 years and it is not getting better for the private sector. Fed showed raises to the average private worker was a slight increase. Not 3% and a 5% bonus. What other city paid its staff 3% plus 5% more than 8% in pay raises? NOWHERE.

So...buy the car that uses gas. After all, it only costs up to $4.00 a gallon now. How does that figure into your budget? Go to any large City in the country and try paying their taxes and electric rates. Better tell Sully, nothing is going to get better. He keeps changing his mind every day. Now if Leetz had a mind..oh, never mind.

Lolita the &% tax is an addition to the cost of energy and is part of a budget for those that have a budget. Evidently you do not or you do not understand a budget. However it is more likely you do not have the sense to over pay for what is not necessary to not over pay for.

Packer I can see what it is every month in the News-Press for the entire county which that figure is not just Cape Coral.

The unemployment is still over 7% how many in those trades you are talking about?

Why a very large majority of those folks are not here anymore.

The real 3 legged stool in the state in relation to jobs has been construction, healthcare, and tourism.

Netransplant 3% RAISE WITH A 5% BONUS ON TOP OF THAT IS ACTUALLY MORE THAN an 8% increase. The 3% on every base pay dollar was 3 cents. The BONUS was calculated on the $1.03. So the 5% on top of the 3% is $1.0815 cents. That is over 8% for every dollar of base pay or salary. The unions have been pulling this crap for years in government labor.
