Americans come in all sizes, shapes, ages and colors. We are rich, poor or just getting by. We love our families and care about our neighbors. We worry about our futures and the generations that will follow us.
If you find you are regularly driving your car on a pothole filled street or you cannot afford to even own a car….you have children or grandchildren who are going into debt while earning a college degree for a future job that may or may not help them pay down that debt…or if you are just one paycheck way from disaster –you do not need someone to tell you there is something wrong in America.
President Donald Trump road to victory on the slogan “Make America Great Again.” I have always thought America was pretty great, but I am willing to work to make it even better. So how about we wait on building that wall and start building bridges (our infrastructure) instead?
Mr. President, please work with our congress ( Republicans, Democrats and Independents) to rebuild our country. Here is a short list to start.
-Rebuild and upgrade our water and sewer treatment plants.
-Take the blue prints and extensive planning for high-speed and commuter rail systems and get them into the hands of builders and construction workers.
-Expand high-speed internet to rural areas.
-Rebuild our power grid.
And while I am at it, please use American made steel, pay workers a fair wage with benefits that include insurance, paid vacations, maternity leave and respect for their labor.
