Cincinnati's thriving. You're not in economic recovery; you're in economic expansion . . . None of it happened by chance. It took hard, concerted effort by the leaders, the builders, business and working people of your city. Men like Tom Nies, who started out 15 years ago with $600 and what he called "an impossible dream. He was a worker at IBM. His field was computers; but he loved Cincinnati, and he wanted to stay here. So, he started his own company, Cincom Systems, and it has grown by leaps and bounds."— Former President Ronald Reagan
"When President Reagan's speechwriters heard our story," recalls Nies, "they said, 'Only in America could this happen.' I replied, 'No, only in a healthy America could this happen. We have a lot of other problems, but without wealth and economic strength, everything else falls apart.'"
