Amazon Picks 20 Finalists For ‘HQ2,’ but Maine Not on List
More than 230 cities had applied to become Amazon's "HQ2". That included Brunswick and Scarborough. They didn't make the final cut.
It was a long shot. We all knew that, but you don't know until you try. We tried. We had to try...according to NBC News:
The company had said it would invest $5 billion to create its new headquarters and would create 50,000 "high-paying jobs" within 10 to 15 years of its opening.
Who the hell wouldn't try for that?
Here are the 20 finalists for Amazon's second headquarters:
- Los Angeles
- Montgomery County, Maryland
- Newark, NJ
- New York City
- Northern Virginia
- Washington DC
Okay. I'm rooting for Boston! Gooooo Boston!
