    Bloomington didn't want Walmart, bulldozing a few trees for an apartment complex, or I-69. I just can't imagine a very warm welcome for companies seeking places to manufacture "new defense products". This ought to make for some interesting drama.

    True, but I'll be on the front lines of the ones screaming at the dirty hippies to get out of the way of profitable biz!!!!

    besides some local drama will be a change from all the drama in Washington!

    Slow down there boys. The article says it's an office to "attract" defense contractors, not an actual production facility. Any production facility is going to look hard at Bloomington and have to weight development cost and restrictions vs. what they could do for far less from a construction and land cost standpoint at Crane gate and have better access to Crane.

    I realize this, but anything being done is better than nothing, plus anything that drives the libs down here nuts is a good thing in my book!

    How convenient that Mr Embree just retired and happens to live in Bloomington. And now the governor appoints him to head up an office to attract new defense contractors to the area, such a great windfall for the former executive director.

    Dollars to doughnuts says that Monroe county doesn't see one new job as a result of this. Oh yeah, and where is the money gonna come from to pay these new contractors again?
