Following Hurricane Sandy, Ana Garcia-Ashley, Executive Director of the Gamaliel Foundation, has written a clear editorial on the need for infrastructure improvement to counter the threat of natural disasters. “We need to seize this moment. We need to win a nationwide commitment to building America’s infrastructure — not as crisis response, but as the new normal. Our economic future depends on it, as do our lives.” You can read her editorial at the Huffington Post, “After Sandy, Building the Future“, and also sign up to follow her column.
