GM whizzes move here?

Posted
Editor,

Today Reuters reported that GM (Government Motors) loses up to $49,000 per car on every Chevrolet Volt sold. The company disputes that figure saying that it is not that much per car. In an April 6, 2012  New York Times article they figured that one would have to own the Chevy Volt for 26.6 years to make up the cost difference from the Chevy Cruze Eco. It seems this kind of thinking would fit here. What type of incentives would we have to offer these GM whizzes to move to Middletown and run for office?
