Two top executives of embattled automaker Chrysler LLC will visit the Toledo Jeep Assembly complex today for a town hall meeting to rally support for the U.S. auto industry, the automaker announced yesterday.
Chrysler Co-President Tom LaSorda and manufacturing chief Frank Ewasyshyn are to appear at 11:30 a.m. at the factories off Stickney Avenue where Jeep Wranglers are made, Chrysler officials said.
Mr. LaSorda will discuss highlights of Chrysler's plan for future success. In addition, the event is a chance for employees, community leaders, and area residents and businesses to voice their opinions about what Congress and the general public should know about the significant impact the auto industry has on the Toledo area community.
Also scheduled to appear are: Bruce Baumhower, president, of United Auto Workers Local 12; Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner; Anne Baker, executive director and chief executive of the Toledo Zoo; Brian Daly, vice president of sales and marketing for Fleet Car Carriers, and Rusty Orben, director of public affairs in Ohio for CSX Transportation.
