Read both emails below: Have you ever sent out an email by mistake? Lesson here for all of us.

What do you give the richest man in the world?
Politicians all over the country have been bending over backwards to bring Amazon’s corporate headquarters to their city. Why are they hiding what they’re giving away to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos — the richest man in the world?
Amazon kicked off a nationwide competition last fall to find a city for its second corporate headquarters. Politicians offered elaborate and expensive gifts to secure the project for their hometown. Some leaders went so far as to offer to rename their town after the company. On January 18, Amazon announced the 20 communities that made their shortlist.
Winnetka is on the shortlist. You have a right to know what they are giving away.
Now, Amazon has requested a new round of proposals, with the requirement of non-disclosure agreements. Amazon's secrecy is simply unacceptable. Working people need to know what our leaders are offering to the e-commerce giant.
In solidarity,

  • Austin
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Indianapolis
