What a Trump presidency means for cities

Tom Cochran, CEO and Executive Director, United States Conference of Mayors

USA mayors have led the way in this country with their ‘Invest and Protect’ theme during the recent tumultuous US presidential campaign.

Invest means a national commitment to modernise and streamline our infrastructure, which includes transportation and water systems. President Trump has called for a multibillion-dollar infrastructure plan.
