Mayor Bob Hancock’s hopes are high as lawmakers consider the steel mill bill, although he said that bill won’t directly affect Kennett.
“We lost 92 jobs then,” Hancock said.
But, Hancock does find hope in Greitens’ attitude towards bringing jobs to Southeast Missouri.
“I sure hope it does,” Hancock said. “When he was campaigning, I got the opportunity to meet him and talk about this. We got the right to work passed in Missouri now, which is a big plus. Hopefully, his agenda is, well this was right at the top of it, his agenda will result in jobs down here.”
