    owned by the private prison industry... best of luck.

    •  Goodyear is the only community to take a stand (5+ / 0-)

      The other locations, Winslow, Eloy, San Luis and Coolidge all want the prisons there.

      I'm guessing it is because of the promise of jobs these companies are rolling in with.

      Goodyear isn't the wealthiest area of the valley, but it isn't poor like Eloy. And while they may crow about the economic aspects in this release, looking back to the original community meeting the biggest concern was Geo Groups horrible record of security.

      I mean, who knew Jan Brewer would flip flop on private prisons after her election, after she said she didn't support them after those inmates broke out and killed two people on her watch? Who knew?
