Now is the time for voters to let Congress know their feelings about infrastructure and jobs in America

It would be wonderful – and significantly helpful – if taxpayers and public officials showed an outpouring of support for rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure. Congressional representatives need to know, without doubt, that there is home-town support for this. Without seeing support from constituents, it’s possible that the program could get delayed long enough to die a sad death. If that happens, the U.S. will remain vulnerable in the race for global leadership… and thousands of jobs that could have been created will be remembered only as “what might have been.”

Building America: InfrastructureUSA Managing Director Steve Anderson on NY1

Friday, November 25th, 2016
Steve Anderson and Errol Louis on "Inside City Hall"

According to Anderson, “It’s going to have to pass the smell test. Are these fair deals? Are these deals that really serve the public interest, or are these deals that in fact enrich corporations and corporate interests?” He says that with a sensible approach that uses not just Trump’s corporate incentives, but also tools like an infrastructure bank, we can expect tremendous returns for the private sector as well as the public at large.

Guest on The Infra Blog: John Kissinger, President and CEO, GRAEF-USA, Inc.

John Kissinger on The Infra Blog
