Alliance in the News

The Transportation Alliance, along with our partners, is working to jump on opportunities to publicize the loss of jobs in the private sector as well as the 22,000 state workers who have been laid off.  In addition to a column in Finance & Commerce, we’ve recruited some of our members to speak out at press conferences.  Bob Struve with American Engineering Testing was quoted in a story on MPR as part of a press event hosted by the Blue/Green Alliance. Bill Bennett from LHB, Inc. also helped get the word out regarding the impact for engineering firms and was included in a story in the Duluth News Tribune.   Bill Aufderheide of Hancock Concrete Products and Al Forsberg, Blue Earth County Engineer were included in a story on the local news station KEYC in Mankato. The Transportation Alliance was quoted in a St. Cloud Times story along with our members, highlighting the impact of the shutdown on road projects.
