CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Nearly two weeks after Amazon announced they want to build a second headquarters, and opened up a nationwide pitch process as to where to build it, Cuyahoga County leaders are speaking out.
Every major city in the country is going after this project and Friday we learned, Cleveland is no different.
In a prepared statement, Mayor Frank G. Jackson and County Executive Armond Budish said they are in the process of putting together a collaborative effort to convince Amazon that Cleveland is the city for them.
Amazon estimates for the new HQ2 project will bring 50,000 jobs with salaries around $100,000 a year.
