“We are thrilled to be in the top 10,” Mason Mayor David Nichols said. “The ranking validates our strategy of having economic development drive community growth, stability, and benefits. We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful residents, schools, and local businesses who contribute so much to the community. This is an award for all of us.”
In commenting on their ranking, Money stated, “At the helm is Mayor David Nichols … he has helped bring several new employers to town — where they join an already impressive list of firms like Procter & Gamble and Mitsubishi.” Money noted that those jobs, plus Mason’s proximity to Cincinnati and Dayton, attract a diverse workforce. “The schools are among Ohio’s best,” the magazine added.
