Amazon Picks 20 Finalists For ‘HQ2′ – 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!
