Boeing may take business out of Washington

Boeing’s intentions are obvious

Regarding Sen. Mike Hewitt’s commentary on Boeing, it doesn’t take a crystal ball to realize that Boeing has clearly demonstrated its intention to leave Washington. [“Guest column: Boeing’s exodus from Washington,” Opinion, June 19.]

Moving the corporate headquarters to Chicago, expanding its production in a union-free state, and transferring more of its engineering force are all clear indications that it will abandon Washington as much and as quickly as it can.

Hopefully, others in Olympia will see the handwriting on the wall and make some moves to alter this situation.
