Abusing COMIDA Benefits

CooperVision is a company that on at least one occasion has received assistance from the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency (COMIDA).

Last night CooperVision played host to a left-wing group's get-out-the-vote phoning for Democratic county legislature candidates.   The very candidates who, if they won, have promised to attach such conditions to COMIDA aid for companies like CooperVision that they couldn't invest, do business or create jobs here.

For using taxpayer-subsidized facilities in this way, we demand that COMIDA repeal all benefits granted to CooperVision.
