Letter: Winning Amazon HQ2 might not be desirable

Winning Amazon HQ2 might not be desirable

Don’t pray too hard for what you want; you might get it. This is good advice for those 238 proposing communities submitting to Amazon for the new headquarters, after reading Jonathan O’Connell’s “An Amazon hub comes at a cost.”

Success for the chosen bidder comes with the added risk that most major corporations cycle into a downward trend. It is surprising, given the technological success in business communications, that Amazon does not create a virtual HQ and distribute jobs nationwide, and oddly has yet to create a cost-saving Amazon Earthport air and ground fleet.

The greatest benefit to the Buffalo-Rochester submission is simply the beginning of an incredibly prosperous partnership with or without Amazon.
