Dear Jeff Bezos: Come and help us build a better Boston together

Alan Diaz/Associated Press/File

Yes, Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and chief executive, we hear you’re looking for someplace to build a new corporate headquarters, a second home, if you will.

Like a lot of cities, Boston is making a play for your new location, and the thousands of jobs it would bring. You’ll find lots to like in Boston’s bid. We’re fond of saying there’s no smarter city on the planet, and none with our Nobel-winning academics and our legions of smart young workers. We invented public education, by the way, and the microwave oven, and today create the robots and smart machines that help power your company. Ideas are in our blood here, like they’re in yours. And if you want to build Amazon into an even-greater company, we’ve got the people you need do it.


But should you decide to come here, our people would need something from you, too. We need your help.
