Amazon says the site will bring 50,000 jobs to the area that wins, and will spend more than $5 billion to integrate themselves into that community.

"That's their calculation. We can't really speculate on that because we don't really know", said Tory in an appearance on Metro Morning on Friday.

With the written proposal, Boston included two promotional videos highlighting why Amazon should say yes to the city. "The Lake County Council encourages Amazon to locate its second headquarters in Northwest Indiana".

The company behind Detroit's campaign, Bedrock Detroit, said in a statement, in part: "We wanted to share something created to go along with that bid that shows Detroit's vision for the future...the entire region came together to join forces and collaborate to show the world that Detroit was made to move". The bid mentions the city's food technology startups - Amazon recently started its own meal-delivery service - and pitches Berklee College of Music as a potential gold mine of talent for Amazon's television and movie arm. Thursday was the deadline for proposals.

Freeman-Wilson established a more-than-60-member steering committee to help guide the city's bid for the second headquarters, including representatives from economic development groups, officials from surrounding communities, county elected officials and other stakeholders all the way to South Bend. If Amazon chooses DE, more than one location could be utilized. And even if Amazon doesn't pick us, it certainly won't mitigate moore's powerful words.
