Had a gentleman from Michigan stop in looking for housing.  He was with 3M and looking at the new jobs posting they had on the net.  According to Jason Murray from the Alexandria Area Economic Development Commission, he gave me this report:  “according to local management, 3M may transfer roughly 10-12  of the new employees to Alexandria from other 3M operations, with the rest of the jobs being hired from the local labor shed.  Projected new hires with the expansion of the facility is 50 new people over the next couple of years.”  For more information about this popular area, go to www.alexmn.org.
