Another Company Leaving Louisville: Traughber Says "See Ya"

A company that has been in Louisville for 121 years looks to be moving to Jeffersonville, IN. soon. Cook Compression's 110 union workers manufacture piston rings and oil field equipment at 8th and Breckenridge downtown. Bruce Traughber, the "economic development" guy for the city says Cook has been talking about moving for 10 years, so Traughber seems indifferent to the situation. HERE is the story in the Courier-Journal.

Question: Exactly what type of jobs are these "economic development" people looking to attract or to keep in Louisville? High-paying manufacturing jobs certainly don't seem to fit on their list.
