Gary, Indiana, Makes Pitch For Amazon
There’s been a lot of speculation about Chicago’s efforts to land the second Amazon headquarters, but Gary, Indiana, is also making a pitch. Gary Mayor Karen Freeman Wilson says it doesn't matter if the city doesn’t have everything Bezos is looking for — like a million plus residents and a thriving public transit system. What the struggling steel town does have, Freeman-Wilson says, is available land, access to Lake Michigan and its close to Chicago. Cities all across the U.S. are pitching themselves to Amazon.
