Lucas County Builds

OK - maybe it is the poorly written article, but I have no clue what purpose Lucas County Builds is filling or how they are counting the jobs they have added? Wasn't Port Authority already doing this? What private companies are donating? This seems odd to me. Am I over thinking this?

So making it easier to get a loan constitutes creating jobs? Huh?

Quote from WTOL:

"The first two loans will assist companies manufacturing parts for Jeep with Dana Corporation and the second loan for Northwest Ohio Building Trades.

The third is a $500,000 loan to a disclosed manufacturer in Overland Industrial Park."

Huh? First two and second? is that three? Northwest Ohio Building Trades - Isn't that a Union Board Group not a company? Does "disclosed" mean they told WTOL but they are not going to tell us?

Off to get coffee then maybe this will make more sense...

You're not thinking right - think re-election, think getting into the news, think convincing the people that the county is DOING something to create jobs.
