Commissioner Bonilla wants the county to fund a company $100k per year for 3 years. That’s $300,000. This money would be used for hiring staff and setting up a local office.
She says it will help low income people. The other board members aren’t quite as convinced this is a good idea for many reasons.
This struck me in much the same way the mayor and other commissioners felt. Why would this company have an advantage over others and why would Orange County fund a company to get started and not others? I could use $100k for three years to start a company that helped low income families too.
