Jacksonville Recognized For Growth In Personal Income

There is good economic news for one part of eastern Carolina.

The feds say Jacksonville had the second highest increase in personal income growth last year in the United States.

The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis credits Jacksonville's 11.2 percent increase to military growth.

Midland, Texas was first on the list with an 11.5 percent increase.

    How is that. My family including most of friends and family are struggling to get by and havent even been able to find jobs that have a decent pat to even cover the basics of living. So how is there any growth. The only growth there is is all the military that are coming that we have no room for.

    I bet the local government is staying up late thinking of new ways to stick their hand in our pockets and take any excess income they feel you have!

    Jacksonville has grown since my last tour. It would not be on the MAP if it was not for the Military Active Duty, Retired and their families. More Jobs should be created and available for Military members as they move on with their futures. As a Marine of almost 30yrs of Honorable and Faithful service, I thank all Military Active duty, Retired Personnel and their families. May God Bless you and keep you and your families safe.
