The National Security Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has started building a $1.2 billion dollar data center at Camp W.G. Williams National Guard Post this year. The massive, one million square-foot facility currently is the largest U.S. Department of Defense project in the nation. The data center will be a state-of-the-art facility designed to support the Intelligence Community’s efforts to further strengthen and protect the nation’s cyber security.
As I watch another business close or go bankrupt and our struggling economy continues to hamper the working class prosperity, they spend that amount of coin on building a site that will will support 100 to 200 permanent, high-paid employees.
Look around guys, our business buildings are emptying out. Are you sure you could not have found any room elsewhere in one of your other government buildings? Secured it up a bit? Spend some of that coin on our schools, road and bridges infrastructure, and more than 100+ jobs?
