Completely agree with Nelson on the WalMart question. Why would we choose to tank an already struggling local economy?! If we want to turn The Dalles into a slum, allowing WalMart into our community is a terrific first step. We want to welcome businesses that pay a decent, living wage, that will offer a better lifystyle to members of our community. Don't we want jobs that will allow people to shop in our local stores? Or instead, will we turn our downtown into a ghost town? Who will this benefit?? It doesn't matter what promises WalMart makes: their business history proves them ingenuous.
Bringing WalMart into The Dalles would be a disastrous leadership decision.
