Special Message from InfrastructureUSA: Moving Forward in 2015

InfrastructureUSA is a powerful advocate for comprehensive infrastructure investment and the source for perspectives on all infra areas.

Now, we need your assistance to keep this nonprofit project vibrant in 2015. We aim to increase our reach, expand our usership, and turn up the volume on the dialogue to restore America’s infrastructure. With your engagement, we can rebuild our failing infrastructure and bring about positive change throughout the nation.

America’s businesses demand better infrastructure, and better infrastructure stimulates our economy. Labor unions recognize that making a safer and improved national infrastructure system creates good quality jobs. Our civil engineers have studied all the areas, from bridges to public transit, and provided us guidelines for what needs to be addressed. Planners, contractors and communities are ready to formulate the next steps.

But where is the national leadership?

Some states and urban centers are doing all they can to patch their failing infrastructures, without major federal support that would enable long-term planning. We don’t need more road congestion, battered bridges or floods to tell us what’s required! Transit systems around the country fail to accommodate basic needs. Even a simple trip to the airport, in many urban areas, is a day-long ordeal. Ancient water systems force homeowners to pay increasingly high rates for increasingly poor service. Do we need more power failures before we fix the grid, or aviation disasters before we bolster our air traffic control systems?

Support InfrastructureUSAInfrastructureUSA needs to grow in 2015, to be able to share vital information, gather together very concerned citizens, engage young people and BE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT OUR LEADERS KNOW HOW WE FEEL ABOUT THE AMERICAN INFRASTRUCTURE CRISIS.

InfrastructureUSA is seeking corporate and foundation underwriting as well as support from individuals, and welcomes input to improve the effectiveness of our efforts.

My thanks for your encouragement and support.

Steve Anderson,
Managing Director
