Who are you talking about? And why would you assume that they would not be involved in such a "huge decision"? Do you have any factual information to back that up, or is this all supposition?Why? Why don't you give any credit to Mr. McDevitt? Is it because he's a Democrat? Would it really pain you that much?
What a bunch of partisan bull crap.
Mr McDevitt deserves credit as well, I have given the Democrats before, and will continue to as well when they do good stuff. I am not the one who refuses to give credit where credit is due, I do not let the political parties blind me like other allow them to. Everyone who was involved in this did a great job, regardless of political party. Losing La-Z-Boy would have been a horrible scenario, so keeping them was great news.
The mayor and governor would have much more information about a public company moving to Ohio rather than Laura Jones.
Is there any evidence to prove that they were not, at the very least internally, looking at a move to Ohio? It would not make sense for them to not look at Ohio.
