Tomorrow, Mayor Aftab will join elected officials and community leaders from across Ohio at the White House to help kick off the Biden-Harris Administration’s Communities in Action Series – one created to showcase how the President’s legislative achievements have helped working families around the country. Mayor Aftab also plans on discussing future opportunities for investment, as well as large infrastructure projects like the Brent Spence Bridge and the Western Hills Viaduct.
“I am honored that top White House officials requested Cincinnati’s representation at its “Communities in Action: Building a Better America” effort,” Mayor Aftab said. “The crucial American Rescue Plan funds, and the Biden-Harris Administration’s continued support, have not only kept us afloat, but have allowed Cincinnatians to thrive, moving us closer to the equitable economy we desire for future generations.”
Using ARP dollars, the City has already leveraged the promise of the Biden-Harris Administration’s CHIPS and Science Act, planning the creation of ready to build sites to capitalize on the Intel deal and attract high tech manufacturing to Cincinnati. The mayor will also highlight the incredible opportunity that lies in the Inflation Reduction Act, as it’s expected to lower costs for families, combat the climate crisis, create good paying jobs, and make the tax code fairer.
At 11:45am, Mayor Aftab will join a panel of Ohio leaders to discuss the impact of ARP on working families. That event can be viewed live at https://www.whitehouse.gov/live/.
The mayor will return to Cincinnati Wednesday night following his White House visit.
