Gov. Mike DeWine was enjoying the kind of chaotic Christmas morning at the Governor’s Residence that most parents and grandparents experience. It was 10 a.m. and his children and grandchildren, many of whom had spent the night, were opening presents when DeWine’s counselor, Laurel Dawson, handed the governor a letter.
It was from Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger and Senior Vice President Keyvan Esfarjani, officially telling DeWine that the semiconductor company had picked Greater Columbus for what will be the biggest economic development project in state history.
