The Ugly Truth: Infrastructure Investment Video

As part of Operation: Strong Cities, we have been asking cities and towns to enhance the way they interact with their communities and legislators. Here at AWC, we have been trying to do the same, and we have produced a short video entitled, "The Ugly Truth: Infrastructure Investment," which you can view below. We are excited to share this video with you, and after watching it, hope that you will share it with your community members and stakeholders.

Use the Conversation Starter to help guide your community through a discussion of why these state infrastructure programs are critical and what you can do together to help secure their future.

In addition to using the conversations starter tool, here are some other suggestions on how to use this video:

  • Post it on your city or town website*
  • Share the video on social media and retweet AWC tweets related to the video – use #infrUglyTruth and #BuildWA
  • Air the video on your public access station (contact Mitch Netzer for broadcast quality video)
  • Show the video at a city council meeting, and discuss challenges your city or has faced in funding infrastructure

Questions? Contact Carl Schroeder or Alison Hellberg.

*The Public Disclosure Commission has advised that this video is acceptable to post on your website absent proposed legislation introduced on these topics. In order to avoid any concerns, AWC recommends removing the video from your website before the legislative session begins on Monday, January 12. Please consult your legal counsel for further clarification.
