Not knowing for sure, but bet it has to do with having work, better roads, better weather, etc.

Raleigh/Durham area is a nice part of NC.

Just one more feather for our states mole faced leader to place in her cap... I really hate that %#^&*... She has done nothing to help this state retain jobs, or bring new employers in.

O.K. I take it you are not in automotive or own your own small business.?. Its funny a good democratic friend of mine worked for the michigan govt and has always defended granny, and when he lost his cushy govt high paying job he jumped the fence in a big damn hurry. Two years ago he told us "I dont think you can blame this states problems on her" He was making $27 per hour for the govt and now he makes $16, had to sell his hybrid and down size his house. Ouch. I blame our states problems on our states leader. West Michigan is starting to look like a ghost town full of foreclosures.

Me.

I was over there six weeks ago and I didnt want to mention it because most of you guys are from there and you see it every day. I agree, its not pretty. Its just spreading thats all and it needs to stop. This is a kick ass state with good people and we are all down right now and we need to pick up our boot straps and start kicking some ass again.

Seriously tho, she doesnt have the magic puppet strings that control all of michigan.

The reason I say she hasnt helped is pretty much due to her "green energy jobs" BS that is going to save michigan (lol)

I agree its fun to scapegoat sometimes, but you cant blame everythign on one person(well you can if you want)...

I dont just blame her. She is the fearless leader of a cabinet she and we chose. I inspect real estate and I have been on a downward spiral for the past 3 years. In 2001 I inspected 3 foreclosed homes. In 2008 inspected 128. I do not see sellers any more and that hurts my bottom line. Companies on the west side here like Herman Miller, Donnelly, JCI, Haworth, S2, etc. have let go of so many employees and shipped work to canada and Mexico to save a buck, they have had no incentives to keep workers working and that was her first campaign when she was first elected. I network with several small businesses across West Michigan and I can not name one company what had normal growth in 07 or 08. Lets just hope 09 is better to us all.

Alma is turning into a ghost town. It's sad when the Masonic Home is the biggest employer. Unless things change, I'm out!

I always get crap down here about wanting to move back to MI. It's a lot more laid back there than here, you can do a lot more without much worry, not as much traffic, and it seems kinda snobby around here.
But yeah I hope to move back soon.
