    Goodyear Mayor makes statement on Lockheed Martin closing:   

“First and foremost, we feel for our residents who work at Lockheed Martin and their families who will be impacted by the closing of its Goodyear plant,” Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord said. “The issue of sequestration involving cuts in the defense industry by the federal government has impacted us, and this is our biggest impact to date. We knew at some point that Lockheed Martin was going to be affected by sequestration, we at the City of Goodyear, did not know to what point.”

 “But this isn’t just about or city; this is going to affect our entire state,” Mayor Lord added. “Washington has to come to terms with their decision. This is just the beginning of the federal government cutting back on defense. But, I have faith in our Economic Development Department that we will fill that building back up with jobs, and hopefully, they will be high-tech jobs.”
