After the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center in northwestern Ohio was ignored in a report from a state commission outlining ways to boost federal and military jobs in Ohio, officials in Lima are looking at ways to get the attention of state leaders. The strategic plan released in April by the Ohio Federal and Military Jobs Commission primarily focused on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and other installations in the state, reported limaohio.com. “The JSMC didn’t figure prominently into that,” Lima Mayor David Berger said at a meeting Monday of Task Force LIMA, the local support organization for the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center, a government-owned, contractor-operated tank and military vehicle production facility. It’s not clear how the group should connect with state leaders, he said. “How we got ignored in this initial report is not very explainable at this point. We just have to continue to pursue this relationship,” Berger said.
