• Veronica: “We can start growing again”

    “I opened Genesee Packaging with my husband 33 years ago, and we’ve been an automotive supplier here in the city of Flint for 33 years. In 2009, when the auto industry was on the verge of complete collapse, and when production was falling and lines were shutting down, there was a chance we would have had to close our doors altogether.

    "But because President Obama stepped in and provided the loans to GM and Chrysler, and the auto industry started coming back, we were able to stay open. The President’s actions went far beyond the auto industry—and Genesee Packaging now has the security to diversify and expand our business so we can start growing again.”
