State Representative Jarrod B. Martin (R-Beavercreek) this month showed his support for the recent announcement of 200 new high-paying jobs to Wright Patterson Air Force Base by the Air Force Material Command.
“This will be a tremendous addition for the Greater Dayton area and as a community, we are grateful for the addition of these positions at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.” Martin said. “These are the high-paying jobs that Dayton and our state are in desperate need of during these difficult times when Ohio seems to be shedding jobs.”
The announcement was made by the Air Force Material Command and the new jobs will pay between $60,000 and $100,000 per year according to officials. The new jobs are scheduled to be added later this year and will continue through 2011.
“We are happy to bring this initiative one step closer to realizing efficiencies, improved support and ultimately taxpayer savings,” said Marie McManus, head of the Installation Acquisition Transformation Enterprise Sourcing Group. “We remain committed to maintaining and even strengthening our resolve to provide opportunities to small businesses and socio-economic groups.”
These positions will center on non-weapons purchases of goods for other military installations across the country and persons interested in applying can do so once they are posted on www.USAJobs.gov.
