Rep. Ken Borton, R-Gaylord, released the following statement Thursday regarding a recent announcement from the City of Gaylord that an Amazon distribution center will be built in their Industrial Park. Amazon plans to build a 42,500 square foot facility on nearly eight acres.

“When Amazon comes to town, it means a lot of new jobs and a lot of new money going into our local economy,” Borton said. “We’re talking about a huge facility employing lots of people. But it isn’t just the jobs. The folks working there will have to buy homes. Then they’ll send their kids to our schools. They’ll shop at our grocery stores and dine at local restaurants. The more you think about how much projects like this add to our community, the more excited you get.”
