I’m glad that Foxconn remains dedicated to Racine County and continues to honor its local
agreements. Foxconn’s willingness to come to the table and negotiate reflecting the evolution of the global marketplace shows its good intentions.
It’s a shame that it had to come to this. Foxconn didn’t create the pandemic, or the hostile
intentions of the Evers Administration towards the project. Big screen TVs were never the end-all-be-all of this project, even if it was the crutch the Administration used to blow up the original pay-as-you-go agreement. In spite of these obstacles, Foxconn is maintaining its commitment to Racine County and Wisconsin.
At least 1,400 jobs and over a billion dollars of investment is coming to Mount Pleasant in the next few years. Foxconn is still a catalyst bringing other businesses to the area. Under any definition, that is something to be excited about and look forward to.
