U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar and Mayor Pete Buttigieg have confirmed their participation for Moving America Forward: A Presidential Candidate Forum on Infrastructure, Jobs, and Building a Better America. The forum will be held on Sunday, Feb. 16 at 2 p.m. PT at the University of Las Vegas. It will be moderated by Jerry Seib, Executive Washington Editor of The Wall Street Journal, and Jeanne Cummings, Deputy Washington Bureau Chief of The Wall Street Journal. The forum will also be live broadcast on C-SPAN and livestreamed on CSPAN.org and imakeamerica.org/forum.

“For too long, serious infrastructure policy has been left on the back burner of many candidates’ agendas,” said AEM President Dennis Slater. “This forum will give candidates the opportunity to share what they think is needed to address our nation’s infrastructure opportunities with American voters at a critical time in the election year.”

AEM is proud to join the International Union of Operating Engineers; Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO; North America’s Building Trades Unions; Transport Workers Union of America; American Society of Civil Engineers; American Public Transportation Association; American Council of Engineering Companies; American Road and Transportation Builders Association; Value of Water Campaign; Airports Council International-North America; and Build Together for the first of its kind forum on the critically important topic of infrastructure.

AEM members who are interested in attending the forum should contact AEM’s Kate Fox Wood at kfoxwood@aem.org for tickets on a first come, first serve basis.
