Election 2016: Infrastructure
Chris Moore hosts the seventh in a series of discussion programs focusing on important issues this election year. In this episode, the panel explores the local aspects of infrastructure, including the safety of our roads and bridges; the condition of our locks and dams; as well as what local officials are doing to keep waste water out of streams and rivers.

Description:

Braddock, Pennsylvania was once a vibrant steel town with a population of more than 20,000. Today, fewer than 2200 people live there. Enter a team of community leaders and investors determined to spark new life. As the borough struggles to rebound from unemployment, poverty, crime and the devastating loss of its hospital, there are signs of revitalization and hope. But who benefits from the rebirth? This program explores Braddock through the eyes of residents and those working hard for change.
