Sen. Sherrod Brown says talks to save GM Lordstown are not over

Local News

For months, politicians and people all around the Valley have been trying to convince General Motors to stay in Lordstown.

The plant will roll off its last Chevy Cruze Wednesday and will shut down entirely on Friday.

Senator Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said the conversation with GM about the Lordstown plant is not over.

“We keep working on. We keep fighting. We keep talking to GM about putting electric vehicles there or moving the production back from Mexico that they sent there,” Brown said. “There are a lot of options GM could still take, but they just don’t seem to be taking them. It’s a tragedy for these 4,500 families that over the last two years have lost their lively hoods.”

Brown says he’s still working with other politicians to keep GM in the Valley.
