From a reader in 2014:
Question 16. What is better for Amherstburg: 500 tourists or one newly-created full-time industrial job?
2014 then-candidate Aldo DiCarlo
This is an interesting question but I’m not sure it has enough detail to answer. Why are the 500 tourists in town and how much money was put into Amherstburg’s economy from them? What does the industrial job pay? I don’t like not answering a question. If someone took the time to ask it, I’ll answer it the best that I can. Assuming the stabilization of economy, I’d have to lean to the industrial job. Jobs contribute to the tax base in numerous ways. I don’t think I need to go into the details of what I mean, the research is all on the internet. Ideally, I don’t see why we would have to choose, but that’s my answer on a grand assumption. With more detail I would answer the question again.
