I am very excited to announce that I have been formally endorsed by the hard working men and women of the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Building Trades.
Their endorsement means a lot to me. I have worked hard to ensure that during our flood reconstruction efforts that construction workers from Linn County were able to compete on a level playing field with firms outside of our community. As a result, over 80% of workers on Linn County reconstruction projects were from Linn County. The economic benefit of local workers keeping their paychecks local was significant.
Linn County implemented a Project Labor Agreement on 5 of our rebuilding projects. Our projects have been at or under budget, on time and the quality of the product is second to none.
I am grateful for the endorsement of the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Building Trades..
