Toledo Works, A Winner

Toledo Works opens a new front in the battle to create jobs in Toledo. And its a good thing. We must act to maintain and attract jobs and development, and marketing our city to folks who make economic development decisions is a winning move.

The Toledo Works website invites people to share their economic success stories, learn about some of the big drivers in Toledo's economic rebound, and provides a download of a morale-boosting sign to get everyone involved in making Toledo Works a success.

Ignore the naysayers, Toledo Works - and through working together, our success is growing.

Frank--

This is a great idea. Let's emphasize the positive in Toledo and hope it helps with oi. If oi leaves, downtown Toledo will be dead.

I agree that Toledo Works is a great idea---but it needs long-term committment from elected officials, the business community, and residents to ensure success. If OI leaves downtown--its not the end of downtown life because there are many other businesses that choose to stay in downtown. Let's take care of the ones who choose to stay there & focus on new or relocating businesses that wants to move to downtown. From what I understand..we are practically giving OI the whole nine yards with millions of taxpayers' dollars, free parking, and tax breaks and yet they are not creating new jobs--why break our backs with that kind of money invested? We can't throw money to every business that decides to leave Toledo--if we did we'd go bankrupt. There has to be a better coordination and leadership to keep the business community happy in Toledo.
