MORRIS COMMUNICATIONS CEO WILL MORRIS, IV
COULD THIS BE crony capitalism? WILL there be a taxpayer bailout for MORRIS COMMUNICATIONS, the impecunious Georgia-based right-wing owners of The St. Augustine Record, which built a too-big building, then sold the Goss presses ($5 million worth), moved printing to Jacksonville, and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, leaving $300 investors relieved of $300 million.
Now MORRIS wants local taxpayers to subsidize its lavish lifestyle and bad business decisions.
We already have a Performing Arts Center (the $10 million St. Augustine Amphitheater).
Let the MORRIS family donate the space for the Performing Arts Center. WILL MORRIS: Don't think you can bamboozle us after having kissed local governments' butts.
