Monsanto brings $140,000,000 to Lubbock
Two years in the making, Lubbock prepares to become the undisputed Cotton Seed Capital of the World with the addition of Monsanto. L.E.D.A. did a phenomenal job in bringing this international company to Lubbock. The final piece of the puzzle came into place when the corporate leaders met with the City Council to obtain assurance we wanted them. Jim volunteered to fly to St. Louis to meet with their legal team to secure their commitment to Lubbock, which helped to put their minds at ease. Other large companies are considering Lubbock but will take a pause before continuing IF we have a majority turnover on the Council. Another reason to keep experienced leadership on the Council.
