Election day in the U.S. is Tuesday, Nov 2. If you are reading this it indicates a certain level of interest in airports and aviation. If you have that kind of connection with aviation then you really have no excuse not to vote.
ACI-NA does not endorse candidates, though our PAC does help support candidates of both parties who have been supportive of airport infrastructure. Regardless of your party or candidate preferences, you should vote.
When you do, all I ask is that you ensure that your candidate understands the importance of airports and aviation to their communities. That they understand that investments in infrastructure are for the long term; and that the jobs and economic activity they foster will be there and growing long after the project is finished and the ribbon is cut.
There are congressmen and senators and candidates of both parties who understand this. Transportation used to be seen as the routine business of government. Politics didn’t much enter in, at least at the stage when programs were being authorized. Ask your candidates whether they are committed to returning to those days. And then VOTE!
