Join us on Zoom on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at Noon when Johannes Werner, will present “The American Jobs Plan: A Once-in-a-Generation Opportunity for Sarasota.”
He will describe President Joe Biden’s ambitious program to tackle climate change and create well-paying jobs. The program may have billion-dollar opportunities for Sarasota. President Joe Biden has created an ambitious program to tackle climate change and create well-paying jobs. As much of Biden’s plan winds its way through Congress —through the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the budget reconciliation process — it appears increasingly that we in Sarasota will see billion-dollar opportunities to reshape transportation, our water and sewage systems, the way we generate and consume electricity, and the way we get Internet access. It’s time to plan and advocate!
