Thanks to everyone who joined us at our 2016 Benefit this past Tuesday. In addition to friends and supporters from across the region, we were joined by honorees CTfastrak, NJ Senators Loretta Weinberg and Bob Gordon, and AECOM. This year’s honorees reflect some of the biggest and boldest thinking on transportation in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York. These people, and the initiatives they have championed, truly represent a new transportation future.
Special thanks as well to U.S. Senator Cory Booker, who joined us via video. The senator highlighted the importance of investing in our region’s infrastructure and neatly summarized the spirit of the evening: that the region’s transportation network relies on big ideas and dedicated leaders.
The board and staff of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign would also like to thank our generous sponsors: The General Contractors Association of New York (Benefactor), TransitCenter, Vornado Realty Trust, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff (Grand Patrons), Amalgamated Transit Union, RATP Dev America, Two Trees Management, Utility & Transportation Contractors Association of New Jersey, Ways and Means NY (Connectors), CH2M, Connecticut Construction Industries Association, GoRail, Janine Bauer & Ed Lloyd, Motivate, New York Public Transit Association, Norman Brown, and Zetlin Strategic Communications (Patrons).
