MIDLAND DAILY NEWS: Midland leaders weigh in on Dow, DuPont merger

"Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland, spoke with some Dow executives earlier Friday and said they are ecstatic about the merger and the news of the Material Science division remaining in Midland. 'I’m told it will be even larger with a bigger share of the market than the existing Dow Chemical Company, which has been such a part of the fabric of the city of Midland for over a century,' Glenn said.

'We have been blessed by the employment opportunities provided by Dow Chemical, and by the generosity of their philanthropy and community citizenship. It sounds like we will continue to benefit from both into the future, with an even larger corporate presence under the merger than we have today.'"
