Campbell County Commissioners are working to bring in federal funds to help build an industrial park east of Cam-plex, but a state senator said the county should be wary of accepting any federal dollars.

In 2014, the county bought 247 acres of land east of what is now the Gillette College rodeo ag complex with the long-term goal of building an industrial park on 167 acres of that property.

Butte Montana’s industrial park is doing very well. Might be a good idea. Small towns struggle with the concept (Torrington/Newcastle), if we could do what Butte is doing it would be a good thing.


Mr. McKeown your apology won't do us any good if we lose out on a chance to bring other industries onto Gillette because you won't take the opportunity this funding offers us. I'm sure West Virginia will welcome all the money we could get.

What's the big deal? Red welfare states have always taken federal money generated by blue states.
