Wisconsin has shot at Foxconn

Ken Notes: GREAT READ, lots of details. We need to get very creative because the competition is fierce. When Verona landed EPIC the key was listening and asking how can we help (I was on the City council at the time). In the end the "deal" was a pay as you go TIF agreement with no risk or substantial upfront cash outlay. EPIC liked the flexibility and willingness to help when needed, but most importantly they like our willingness to stay out of the way.

Foxconn will be looking for much the same thing. The first words out of our mouths at every meeting and at every turn should be, "How can we help?" PS, I promise to buy only Sharp TV`s if they come.
