America’s mayors are pretty much in universal agreement about the nation’s chronic neglect of infrastructure. At least that’s the conclusion of a survey described in this article in Politico.
I am quoted about half-way through. Here’s what I said:
“The federal government could do much more to support sustainable growth patterns, based on compact, walkable communities, served by mass transit,” says New Rochelle, N.Y., Mayor Noam Bramson. “We’re under-investing in infrastructure overall and misallocating the infrastructure investments we do make. Achieving the right balance would benefit both our economy and our environment and give taxpayers a better bang for the buck.”
