Keep Caddo's Cash!

    2. Petition by

      Stephanie Lynch

Racer Trust sold the old GM plant to Elio Motors. A key provision of selling the plant to Elio was the company's promise to create 1,500 jobs manufacturing its three wheeled concept vehicle in Caddo Parish.

It now appears Elio can not afford to purchase the plant, and the promise of those 1,500 jobs materializing is doubtful.

We are petitioning the Caddo Parish Commission to keep its cash and ask Racer Trust to re-market the property to find a more qualified and financially stable buyer than Elio Motors.

      I filed suit on Thursday, Aug 22 seeking to restrain the Commission from consummating the deal to use taxpayer's money to fund the purchase of the old GM plant. I have asked the court to delay pending a hearing on the matter. A copy of the petition can be found at http://www.shreveporttimes.com/assets/pdf/D9210613822.PDF

      Elio Motors might be an asset to this community if they were able to fund their venture; however, I don't believe that their product will have enough wide spread interest nor longterm viability. As such I believe investing $7.5 mil is a poor financial decision.

      a huge waste of taxpayers dollars and possibly a constitutional violation. Louisiana has been down this road before in Monroe with the GM Guide plant. Nip it in the bud ... nip it, nip it, nip it!
