Musk owes California

Published: Sunday, Apr. 27, 2014 - 8:04 am

Re "Tesla should return state's favor" (Dan Morain, April 20): Morain's Sunday editorial was so correct on so many levels regarding Elon Musk's proposal to locate his new battery plant in states other than California.

It's not clear if Elon is using this threat to build his plant outside of California as a negotiating ploy. If it is, he should back off and thank us Californians for helping him get to where he is currently in building some great automobiles as well as space rockets. Where else but California could he find the kind of workers who share his vision of the future? Texas? Don't think so.

Elon, don't bite that hand that has fed you in your infancy. Plus, it's the right thing to do in locating your next great venture in your home state.
