Nashville Councilwoman Calls Amazon's Withdrawal from New York 'Disheartening'

A Nashville councilwoman called Amazon's abrupt cancelation of plans to build a campus in New York City "disheartening" on Thursday, saying it sends a negative signal about the company's willingness to work with local politicians.

"It seems like the politicians up there and the local elected officials started asking tough questions, and that's what elected officials are supposed to do ー we're supposed to be stewards of the taxpayer dollars," Councilwoman Kathleen Murphy told Cheddar.

"If we ask questions, are they just going to run away?" Murphy, who has been critical of some of the incentives Nashville is providing Amazon, said debate is important.

"We need to have open and transparent conversations so our constituents know what is going on and we know that we're doing what's best for Nashville."
