Governor, Mayor Appeal to Ford

Governor Pawlenty and St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman are making another effort to save the Ford Plant. The governor and mayor are in Dearborn, Michigan today with a tax incentive plan they hope will entice Ford executives to keep the St. Paul Ford Ranger plant open. The plant, which currently employs about 900 people, is scheduled to close next year. The Minnesota delegation is reportedly armed with a $90 million  tax incentive plan to try and get Ford to retool the plant to make a new vehicle now that the Ranger is going out of production.
