ALABAMA: Auburn has announced a new Osteopathic Medical College opening. Sound familiar? So is Dothan.
WAIT - Auburn University is opening in partnership. Does Auburn get state funding? Dothan does not. In fact the people of Dothan and Houston County had their property taxes increased in order to pay for the college.
The question to State Representative Paul Lee, since the Speaker of the House and your good buddy Mike Hubbard is from Auburn/Opelika, will they get state funding for their college? If so, why did you not get Dothan/Houston County state funding for the college?
Hey Paul, we need an answer because if we got the property tax increase and Hubbard's district gets the state funding, and you did not save Center Stage, that means for sure - THEY GOT THE GOLD MINE and we GOT THE SHAFT!!!
Auburn University and the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Va., announced Thursday that the college will open a new branch campus in the Auburn Research Park.
In addition to the new campus in Auburn, the two schools signed an agreement establishing a partnership that will include sharing facilities and collaborative work on health care research.
The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine, or VCOM, was established in 2001 and has campuses in Virginia and Spartanburg, S.C. The Auburn campus is expected to open in fall 2015 with a class of 150 students, who will pursue doctoral degrees in osteopathic medicine.

As we understand the State of Alabama did give $ 2 million to Dothan - Houston County for building a road.
