Dear Mr. Mittal,

I read last week of your August 8 tour of Dofasco’s steelmaking and hot mill facilities in Hamilton, Canada.  Cleveland, Ohio is only 163 miles from Hamilton, a half-hour trip on one of your corporate jets.

The neighbors of your ArcelorMittal Steel plant in Cleveland invite you to visit the Cleveland facility and its Cleveland neighbors.  They are interested, as I imagine you are, in your continued production of steel in the community with fewer air emissions.  The best way to reach this common goal is to open the lines of communication between decision makers at ArcelorMittal Steel and its Cleveland neighbors.

I look forward to helping facilitate this relationship in the near future.  Please let me know when your travel plans will be bringing you to Cleveland.
