The following is a news release from the city of Murrieta: 

The City of Murrieta was given a “Turning Red Tape into Red Carpet” award for Business Retention and Expansion last week by the Inland Empire Economic Partnership (IEEP). Murrieta was also a runner-up in the Responding to Globalization category.

 

Recognized for their “comprehensive approach to economic development” and for “creating a prosperous Murrieta Valley Region,.” Murrieta, under the Economic Development Program, has established a “business concierge” program and a Priority Projects Program that help to fast-track permit processing.

 

“We want business in Murrieta,” said Murrieta Mayor Alan Long at the event. “Murrieta is a business-friendly city and we are working hard every day to encourage, attract and grow business.”

 

The city was also recognized by the IEEP for its efforts in responding to globalization by “promoting an internationally competitive city and region.” Murrieta has developed an Economic Development Program to create a global perspective and presence for Murrieta as a community that welcomes foreign direct investment and promotes international business growth to spur job growth locally.

 

“This is a global economy now and we need to recognize the opportunities outside of our borders,” said Bruce Coleman, Murrieta’s Economic Development Director. “Murrieta encourages international investments in our local companies as well as exporting. It’s a way we can help our businesses to grow.”

 

The Thursday evening IEEP event at the Redlands Country Club was presented by Chase and co-hosted by the Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG), the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) and San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG).

 

The IEEP is a private, non-profit regional economic development organization for the Inland Empire (which includes both Riverside and San Bernardino Counties). The mission of the IEEP is to help create the two-county region’s voice for business and quality of life.

Thresher 200- isn't Thresher a skate board? I googled it and it said it was a skate board. Interesting choice for a name if that is true. The bullet holes are gone, but that pesky blood stain remains. I like the emphasis on "old" boxing gloves-like you, I am on old vet too. Much too old to play younger man games of who can kick whose ass. The last fight I was in was in Vegas 4 years ago at Harrah's Carousel bar- won that one and retired.

Caterpillar, Verizon, and others are already coming out with the costs they will incurr over this. But that isn't the REAL problem here. The real problem is what this is going to do to the already sucking outloud economy we have. I am talking about mass lay offs that makes what we have had already look like nothing. These companies will pay less people to work more hours because it will still be cheaper than paying the associated costs of Obamacare. The union people will be hit just as hard as the average working man too. That's gonna' suck for them, but I would call it poetic justice. The underground economy is also getting ready to explode. I mean explode. People that have farm labor and small business labor will save money by just paying cash and not dealing with the new taxes. Up until now they could come out by writing the labor off on their taxes, but now it would be stupid to do so. So, the way I see it is the liberals are working on accomplishing their tru motives here. Destroy the health system and move to single payer, destroy the economy and have the government owning all of business, and last but not least, destroy the drive that has made Americans the the best people on the planet by taking all control away and the ability to strive for more. After all, in a communist society one person cannot have more than another remember.

Mike- I am pretty sure JK saw it- but since he is a liberal tax and spend entitlement freak he won't admit any problems with the dems in charge in California. He should move to New York City where the tax rate is the highest, since he has no problem paying taxes. One more calif company to Texas where their economy is so much better than Cali- and they support the 2d Amendment.
