2,000 workers on the PORTS D&D Project in Piketon, Ohio have been
riding a rollercoaster of uncertainty for the past few years as
the Department of Energy (DOE), Congress and the President make
budget decisions that have a huge impact on the kitchen tables
throughout this community.
the past year site personnel, business owners, community leaders
and union leadership have joined together to ask the DOE and the
Ohio Congressional Delegation to fully fund the accelerated clean-up
of the site promoting reindustrialization and they have responded!
understand there are many decision makers who are not from southern
Ohio or familiar with our community. It is because of this reason
we have gathered business and civic leaders within our community
to tell our story in hopes to reach hearts and minds the next
time budget decisions are made in Washington D.C.
are proud of our community and proud of the work happening at
the PORTS D&D Project!
