First things first, we extend a heartfelt thanks to Congressman Donald Payne, Jr.; the esteemed Panelists; the Moderator, Antwanye Ford and Facilitator Carl Evans; the hardworking leadership of Chief of Staff, LaVerne Alexander and the staffers from Congressman Payne Jr. office, Library of Congress Event Services; the 'dedicated-to-success' support team; and last but not least a special thanks to all of the attendees.
After each Build America event, the momentum keeps gaining steam. We are fortunate to have the knowledge, experience and support from key decision makers in the infrastructure construction industry to help elevate the Events mission to create jobs and contract opportunities. With the support of corporate giants and agencies like AECOM, SKANSKA, AMTRAK, US Army Corp of Engineers, JACOBS, NEXT WAVE, ENLIGHTENED, Inc. and others; our objective of getting small, minority contractors work on local, regional and national contracting projects is foreseeable.
Crumbling roads/bridges/tunnels across the United States; devastation in Puerto Rico, Florida, California and Houston; and the ever-increasing threat of cyber security breaches are all mission critical issues that have become a dire and urgent infrastructure need.
We are excited to have you on board this fast-moving train we are helping to navigate. The holidays will not slow our momentum. Our next Build America event will take place at Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, New Jersey Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at 9:00 am.
The specific focus of the Briefing will be the $25 Billion Gateway Projects and Airport Redevelopment. If they have not done so already, Congressman Payne, Jr office and/or Carl Evans will be reaching out to everyone in attendance to record your ideas and interest to keep things moving forward. In the interim, Mr. Evans can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him directly at (908)616-9570.
