Chagrin Falls, OH – Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Matt Dolan released the following statement on the announcement from the State of Ohio and Intel Corporation that the computer chip company will invest $20 billion to build two semiconductor plants in the Columbus area. According to The Columbus Dispatch, the plants will employ 3,000 workers and will create 7,000 construction jobs and 10,000 additional indirect jobs. Dolan presently serves as the Senate Finance Committee Chairman in the Ohio Statehouse.
“Today’s joint announcement from the State of Ohio and Intel projects American strength and sends a clear message to China that we are prepared to do what it takes to invest in research, innovation and our workforce to stand in defense of our interests on the world stage. Our nation has entered into a new era of great power competition with the Chinese Communist Party. If we are to succeed, we need leaders with the experience and skillset to forge consensus and generate a pro-growth environment conducive to modernizing infrastructure, growing and educating our workforce and incentivizing a revival of American-based manufacturing and innovation. In my capacity as Senate Finance Chair in Columbus, I have authored and passed legislation and a state budget that accomplishes these goals for Ohio. In the U.S. Senate, I will maintain this focus, advance similar policies and achieve the same results for our nation.”
