Mayor for Life and Steve Beshear are Captains Obvious. The two released a joint statement this afternoon saying that the automotive industry is vital to the economies of both Louisville and the Commonwealth of Kentucky. “We cannot let the automotive industry fail,” Beshear said. “It would be devastating to Kentucky’s economy – and to Louisville’s vitality.” … “Ford has a plan for its future, both nationally and in Louisville,” Abramson said. “It’s about making smaller, more fuel efficient cars – and it’s about making them in our hometown.” We’re not sure a press release was necessary?
