Just got this note from Bruce Lydem, a union official and former City Council candidate who's in Washington this week:
As you know, yesterday was a big day of celebration here in D.C. A day that I will remember the rest of my life. To be a part of the more than one million people who watched our new president take the oath of office was overwhelming.
Today, however, there was a different mood as I visited members of Congress and their staffs to discuss President Obama’s infrastructure Renewal plan. Our delegation and their staffs are already working with the new administration to jumpstart America’s economy. The proposed legislation, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill, is designed to create and save 3 to 4 million jobs.
Hopefully this proposed bill, which cuts taxes and increases spending on targeted investments, will put Bristol and America back to work.
