With all due respect Loughlin Marina is NOT revenue "neutral" its revenue POSITIVE! Freddy from Johnston, in an independent study, estimates LM will create One-Million High-Paying jobs! This of the tax revenue from that! https://t.co/7UFkR3LvHv

Rhode Island’s official tall ship is set to become a tourist attraction in Virginia.
A foundation in the waterfront city of Alexandria has purchased the 110-foot sloop-of-war Providence, a full-scale replica of the first warship in America’s Continental Navy, and is busy making repairs so it can be used for maritime educational programs.
Quick! Surely we can put together an incentive packaged (backed by a moral obligation bond) to subsidize this ship’s continued use in Rhode Island. The tourism will be so huge that it’ll never cost taxpayers a dime. And we can put it in the Loughlin Marina.
At Loughlin Marina our slogan says it all. "You give us the tax dollars, we'll give you the slip" https://t.co/zhNZojUMns
