COMTO Sponsors Summit on Transportation and the Economy

On March 5, the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials will sponsor a summit examining the impact of the $900 billion economic stimulus legislation recently signed by President Obama. The law firm Patton Boggs LLP will host the event at its offices, 2550 M St. N.W., Washington, DC.

Donna Brazile, Democratic strategist and the first African American to run a national presidential campaign, will be the keynote speaker. APTA Chair Beverly A. Scott, Ph.D., and APTA President William W. Millar are among the many presenters.

“The time to overhaul the nation’s transportation systems and create jobs is now,” said COMTO National Chair Shirley A. DeLibero. “These are historic times for the transportation industry and we must speak with one voice to help revitalize our economy,” she continued. “We need fresh ideas.”
