As I was reading through the newspaper this morning, I read where a division of the FBI in Washington, D.C., has grown out of its space and will shortly be looking for someplace to build a new office building. The Fremont and Bridgeport area is vying for it due to the FBI already being there.
But we already have the Public Debt, so Parkersburg can be just as viable as the Fremont-Bridgeport area. This would be a great way to bring more business downtown and continue to build population for a better tax base. I suggest Parkersburg put itself in the running for the new FBI facility and not stand by and let other cities in the state take it. Parkersburg is a wonderful place to live and has just as much or more to offer.
