Wilmington Economic Development

Recommended Posts


Wilmington which I get to once a year is booming so it will be good to have someone on the ground there.  And there is a lot more business than tourism there the port, PPD, the fintech, manufacturing etc.   Downtown is booming too with RiverPlace and new apartments.  It is like a Charleston 10 years ago.  So once you get there flood the site with photos too.

The three racist WPD officers are now trending nationally. Not a good look.

Race relations have always been Wilmington’s Achilles heel.

Going back to its founding....

It's so interesting to know that before 1898 Wilmington was a Black majority city, and even had a prosperous freed-slave population before the massive 1898 Massacre

Actually it was the first and only time in the USA in which an elected government was violently overthrown.
