Senator Thomas Comments On Amazon's Announcement
January 18, 2018

COLUMBUS – Today, state Senator Cecil Thomas (D-Cincinnati) issued the following statement on Amazon's decision to not include Cincinnati on its list of finalists for its second North American headquarters.

"I am disappointed to hear that Cincinnati did not make the cut to be a finalist for Amazon's second North American headquarters. The Tristate region of Greater Cincinnati worked hard and placed so much effort in its proposal.

"It is truly inspiring to see the strong partnerships made in our region and I want to continue to thank REDI Cincinnati and local community leaders in all three states for their leadership. I also want to thank Amazon for the investments they have already made and the constructive feedback they plan to give in the near future. I look forward to our communities in the region coming together again and analyzing how we can continue to grow as we pursue future investment opportunities."
