October 16, 2017 – San Antonio Express-News Editorial Board –

San Antonio has decided not to throw its hat into the Amazon ring — a point that has understandably disappointed some in the community.

The prospect of being home to Amazon’s second headquarters and all those six-figure tech jobs is tantalizing.

Cities have been falling over themselves to stand out — but we’re standing out for sitting out.

That’s really not such a big deal. If San Antonio had gone forward with a bid, we would have been supportive but also realistic.

 San Antonio has much to offer, but our chances were slim to none. We lack the workforce, transportation and higher education opportunities that Amazon or any other tech behemoth would deem essential.
