COLUMBUS—Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) today released the following statement in response to the announcement that Amazon has changed plans to build a worldwide air cargo hub from Wilmington to Kentucky:

“To say I am disappointed by today’s news from Amazon is an understatement—I have always been confident that the state of Ohio and the people of Clinton County have done everything in their power to make Wilmington an attractive and hospitable place for not only Amazon, but other companies as well.

“Wilmington has never been about one company. We are about our people, and our people make us strong. Our state has made tremendous strides over the past several years to diversify our economic environment to ensure that companies, small and large, can continue to view Ohio as a place to do business.

“I am incredibly proud of the unmatched workforce of the people of Wilmington. Clinton County has always been resilient in the face of adversity, and I look forward to working with state and local elected officials and business leaders in the hopes that we can move past this unfortunate news and continue to spur economic growth in our region of Ohio.”
