---- — Missouri governor hails new Ford jobs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Thursday hailed the announcement of 2,000 new jobs at Ford Motor Co.’s Kansas City assembly plant as further evidence of his state’s role in the rebirth of the U.S. automobile manufacturing industry.
With new F-150 trucks rolling by on an assembly line conveyer belt behind him at the plant in Claycomo, just outside of Kansas City, the governor thanked Ford executives for their investment in the Kansas City area and praised the company’s workers for helping Ford make that decision.
