AEM Hosts Milwaukee Mayor, Local Stakeholders for Infrastructure Event

MILWAUKEE, WI — AEM, in collaboration with Brookings Metro, hosted Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson, as well as local business and civic leaders, in Milwaukee for a discussion on the present and future state of Milwaukee’s infrastructure.

The event, titled "Rethinking Milwaukee’s Infrastructure: The Challenges and Opportunities", provided an opportunity for local stakeholders to weigh in on why infrastructure investment is so critical for Milwaukee and — more specifically — how it can better be advanced in the years ahead.

The event was the latest in a series AEM has hosted across the country to highlight policy recommendations outlined in "Rebuild With Purpose: An Affirmative Vision for 21st Century American Infrastructure", which AEM released in collaboration with The Brookings Institution last year. More than 30 policy recommendations from the report were included in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which President Biden signed into law in 2021. That legislation is poised to deliver historic investments in the nation’s roads, bridges, locks, and dams, as well as power lines and ports.

Throughout the remainder of this year, AEM’s Infrastructure Vision 2050 initiative is set to partner with employers, workforce development leaders, economic development officials and many others, to remind policymakers that the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act offers an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate infrastructure careers that pay higher wages, require short-term credentials, and need a new generation of talent.
