Young bought Harbor Point hook, line and sinker
It's just so easy for politicians to repeat what they hear. The recent commentary ("Harbor Point means jobs, inclusion," Aug. 14) by Baltimore City Council President Jack Young is a classic. The constant repeat of "the 7,000 construction jobs and thousands of permanent jobs" has become mind numbing at this point. The 51 percent of new hires from the city is another pearl of wisdom! A healthy level of commercial construction is an important part of any economy, and Harbor Point will create some temporary construction jobs, but new buildings do not create permanent jobs.
