Montgomery County Makes the List for Second Amazon Headquarters

Montgomery County made the list as a potential site for Amazon’s second headquarters. Selected from 238 proposals, Montgomery County is one of the 20 sites which made the list. The company plans to locate 50,000 jobs at the new headquarters.

County Executive Ike Leggett released the following statement:
“I am extremely pleased and proud that Amazon selected Montgomery County, Md. to enter into future discussions regarding locating their second headquarters. I want to thank Governor Hogan and his entire team for their strong support in helping to create a compelling case for the County.
“As the only County in the country on the short list, having the ability to move forward for further consideration is a real honor. I believe our initial proposal made an extremely strong case for Montgomery County as a great place do business, and I look forward to working with Amazon to bring jobs and investment to the County.”
