Chairman Andy Duyck's Statement on Nike Announcement

 

"It goes without saying that we are proud and pleased to hear this announcement. Nike is our county's second-largest property tax contributor. Nike employees and families contribute enormously to our community. While this announcement is great for Washington County, it is also a huge boon to the state of Oregon. It has really been a collaborative effort over many months to bring us to this point. Kudos go to the City of Beaverton, the State of Oregon and even to Portland Mayor Hales for all having a 'can do' cooperative attitude. The benefits are enormous!"
