The chief executive officer of the National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA), Doug Carlson, issued the following statement in reaction to the delayed results from Election 2020:
“As America awaits the results from the 2020 presidential contest, one result remains looming large: America needs to make infrastructure an immediate priority.
“Repairing or building new infrastructure for our American communities can dramatically solve several of today’s severe challenges, whether it be clean water, economic recovery, jobs, better highways and bridges, or modern telecom needs. A party label doesn’t matter when clean water isn’t delivered safely to constituents, or their wastewater isn’t efficiently taken away, or their Internet connection is too slow.
“Infrastructure isn’t going to fix itself—that takes commitment from Congress in resources and an Administration bold enough to plan and manage the programs to make these projects become reality. And since support for infrastructure investment cuts across age, gender, party, geography, and ideology, there shouldn’t be an argument about its need.
“NUCA and the American utility construction industry stands behind rebuilding this nation’s infrastructure as a top priority.”
