Small towns brace for Ford’s arrival


Lesa Tard expects to serve up more hot wings and cheeseburg­ers when the clean energy revolution comes to Stanton, Tenn., with Ford’s plans to build a factory to produce electric pickups. So she’s planning to expand with the town. She’s looking forward to serving thousands of workers who will arrive once constructi­on begins and a vehicle and battery manufactur­ing complex opens. Stanton is one of two Southern towns likely to undergo transforma­tions in the wake of Monday’s announceme­nt by Ford. The automaker will put Stanton and Glendale, Ken., at the center of its plans to ramp up electric vehicle production.
