Mishawaka Mayor Wood welcomes Hillary Clinton's visit
Mishawaka Mayor Dave Wood said he is pleased Hillary Clinton decided to visit AM General.
Just last year, AM General began producing Mercedes vehicles for export in addition to their military-grade Humvees.
Although Clinton is the first major candidate to visit the princess city this year, Mayor Wood says he wants all candidates of either party to show up.
He says with the area’s history in manufacturing, especially of vehicles, it makes sense for Clinton to visit and others to follow.
“AM General has got a great tradition here over decades, and this area has a tradition of well over a century of automobile manufacturing. So when you think about world class vehicles, AM General is close to the top of the list on that,” Wood said.
