The Canton Repository has new information about today’s Diebold announcement.  One is that the move very likely will cost the City of Canton significant losses in municipal income tax receipts.

The second throws even further doubt if they were ever serious about moving out of Ohio in the first place:

[T]he company told then-Governor Ted Strickland’s administration that “it was our strong preference not to leave.”

Again, how do we know that Diebold didn’t get an incentive package from either North Carolina or Virginia simply because that’s what is required under HB 58?

Enjoy the “free” Corporate World HQ!  Glad the State of Ohio under Kasich didn’t overreact.
