First off, thanks Matt for this discussion group as well as the daily briefing. My RLN is Jerry Salisbury and I am a retired hospital Facility Manager in Akron Ohio. I lived in Seattle, Washington for many years and worked at the University of Washington.
Returning to Ohio from Seattle has been major culture shock for us. Seattle was fairly progressive and returning to “the heartland” has as I said been traumatic. When I left this State in 1978 it was highly unionized and it seemed as though people cared for each other. Now I’m sorry to say, people vote for candidates like Trump and we seem to have become one with the party of “I’ve got mine - screw you!”
In any event thanks for providing a place to exchange information (and occasionally just vent).
Best regards to all
