Amazon, Georgia snagged the top spot for the “most creative” proposals that have caught the attention of the national network, Headline News.

In a recent interview with “On The Story’s” Erica Hill, Stonecrest Mayor Jason Lary discussed his city’s proposal to name a portion of the new municipality, Amazon, Georgia as a way to lure the tech giant to build its second headquarters, HQ2, in the city of 53,000 residents.

Lary told Hill that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos would create an “eternal brand” and become “the first corporate mayor ever in the history of the world,” if the city is named Amazon.

Included in Lary’s proposal was the deannexation of 345 acres of industrial park land for the purpose of creating Amazon, GA, within the city of Stonecrest.

Lary said he has been flooded with interviews from across the country regarding the city’s proposal.

News agencies have reported that some 238 proposals from across North America have been submitted to Amazon for consideration. Stonecrest was among the jurisdictions in Georgia that submitted its proposal to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, which consolidated the proposals it selected. The state had to submit its package to Amazon by Oct. 19.

At deadline, there was no word yet on whether the idea was included in a state package submitted. To view the Headline News’ interview, go to:
