Little Victories

Here’s a story that will never get into the Buffalo News.

Bob and Kim Grant moved back to Buffalo from Columbus, Ohio.  Their careers took them to Columbus eight years ago.  When they finally decided they had to move back they did a job search in this area, got and accepted offers from Delaware North and Applied Sciences Group, respectively.

The newspapers love to write eye-catching headlines like “600 to lose jobs at American Axle”; but you will not find articles about how local businesses are hiring people, one or two at a time. 

Even though Western New York is still losing population, there are little victories on occasion that offset many of the job losses.  Those victories keep me hopeful for our collective future.
