I like your post back to the references in Dayton. I just did not want to duplicate it. Yes, Dayton has some government type jobs such as WPAFB which are doing OK. But I had a number of friends who worked in the automotive industry in Dayton. That is decimated, plain and simple. The older ones like me may be still be collecting a pension, but it is diminishing. Dayton as a whole is going downhill, anyone who thinks otherwise has blinders on.

And if the current national budget, is that a right term can they budget anything? continues the cuts in national defense may bring WPAFB to its knees.

So true. I have never lived in such a depressing little city as this. And there is the fingerprint of a once great city still there, but it continues to free fall. I was there when the GM plant closed in Moraine and I think that was the last nail in the coffin for the auto industry. But to be clear, there are some tool and die shops still around, and some other manufacturing. But it is very hard to find work in Dayton. If my work wasn't online and my clients out of state, Dayton would have been very hard on me.

Shouldn't this be in the Dayton forum?

I consider Dayton so close to Cincinnati I really do not separate the two that much. Anything which affects Dayton also affects Cincinnati. So I won't argue much about whether something should be in the Dayton forum.

I think the purpose of the board is to provide relocation advice, no?

So I think some of the suburbs btw the two cities could show up on both boards? People could be working out in those new office in Austin Boulevard & I-71, but also be considered part of the Cincy area, too, as their wives and husbands could be working down in Mason or Westchester.

As a whole the metro area gained population btw 2000 & 2010, 2%-3% increase? So the issues in Dayton are really with the city and certain suburbs.

But, yes, If they seriously cut back on defense spending and cut the defense-related workforce in the Dayton area by maybe a 1/3rd the local economy would feel that hurt.

@@@

It is sort of jarring to see this defense-driven suburban sunbelt economy ("Colorado Springs in Ohio") right next to rust-belt hard times town ("Dayton is the new Youngstown").
