Building One America

Next month I’ll attend the Building One America conference in Washington, DC, all expenses paid by me, to advocate for that national government to:

-Increase support for excellence in public education;

-Increase support for sustainable infrastructure improvements in communities including, water, sewer, road, tunnel and bridge upgrades;

-Increase support of public transportation; and

-Enforcement of anti-housing discrimination laws.

Leaders from across the US and Pennsylvania will attend this summit that is focused on inner ring suburban communities.  Please send me any suggestions.
