February 22, 2024 - Conversation with Jack Mautino - We engaged in a productive discussion with Jack Mautino, the Columbus Division President for D.R. Horton. Mr. Mautino demonstrated a receptive attitude towards our cause and offered valuable insights into the contractual agreement between D.R. Horton and Dollar General.
