The mayor of Lansing is back from Italy, and he says he may have brought some jobs with him.
Virg Bernero says he was the only American mayor to meet with CEOs from businesses over there. He says he's got a deal with a tech company that will bring some nine-million dollars and 80 jobs to Lansing in next couple of years.
"My daughter is in Florence on a study abroad program, so I was able to stop in with her. But also to do this important business in Torino - what I think will pay dividends for years to come in Lansing."
The mayor won't say who the green tech business is, but did say it will manufacture and distribute in Lansing. The name of the company will be announced by the end of the year.
