Important Message from AGC CEO Regarding Stimulus Package

December 12, 2008
Yesterday AGC of America launched a new national effort to ensure that Congress and the President-elect understand the vital need for investing in infrastructure as part of the pending stimulus package.  The centerpiece of this effort is, frankly, you.  As you will see from the advertisement we’ve begun placing, we are encouraging people to sign up and indicate their support for badly needed new infrastructure investments.  We will share this list with members of Congress when they return to work on January 6th, and also will provide it to the President-elect’s transition team. We need your help in ensuring that the full breadth and depth of our support is reflected in this list.  So I am asking each of you, please, to reach out to your employees, your suppliers, your subcontractors, and your local government and business community leaders.  Encourage them to log on to www.agc.org/letsbuild and sign up.  And encourage them to tell their colleagues and co-workers to do the same.  With your help, we can make sure Congress and the new Administration understand the value and wisdom of new infrastructure investments.  With more than 770,000 construction workers out of work over the last two years, our sector has been one of the hardest hit by the country’s financial challenges.  With your help we can make sure our members are put back to work… now, building America’s future.  After all, the infrastructure projects our members build will not only put people back to work, they will serve as a crucial foundation for future economic growth. Thank you in advance for your help and support.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Senior Director of Public Affairs, Brian Turmail at (703) 837-5310 or turmailb@agc.org.   Stephen Sandherr Chief Executive Officer Associated General Contractors of America
