Now that Amazon.com has pulled the plug on locating their HQ2 in New York, at least one county in Tennessee is courting Jeff Bezos.
In a Saturday-morning tweet, Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs said, “The #KnoxCounty area is located at the intersection of 2 major interstates, has a very capable workforce, great sports, entertainment, and outdoor recreation, and world-class higher education and R&D facilities. And we LOVE business and jobs!!”
Jacobs’ tweet also included a gif of Taylor Swift, who also calls Tennessee home.
The Knoxville Chamber of Commerce had previously put in a proposal to be the locale for Amazon’s secondary headquarters. No word yet from Bezos as to whether he’s considering Jacobs’ offer this time around.
