So, 1,195 Mahoning Valley manufacturers are here! I'd like to see this list b/c according to a nationwide industrial manufacturer database, we only have 414 manufacturers in our 3-county area. Another stat this article noted was our manufacturers employ 40,000 people! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for our Y-town metro area as of Dec. '11, we only had 30,300 manufacturer jobs!

I wasn't able to attend last night, but if the facts are correct in regards to how many more people are in boardman township during the day, has the township tried instituting a "security" tax to all the retail establishments. It would seem a lot easier to charge an extra 0.5% on monthly gross profits to businesses than over a 3mill tax increase to the people. What would the retail businesses do.........close up!? No.....they'll pay it.
