Washington— As the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg sees asphalt as his enemy. As the governor of Michigan, Jennifer M. Granholm faces an attempt by a Republican-led legislature to block its grand infrastructure ambitions. As governor of Rhode Island, Gina Raimondo overcame the initial opposition to the infrastructure plan by moderate members of the party.
The three are part of a panel of five cabinet secretaries elected by President Biden. Biden has been selected as an advocate for the Obama Administration’s “American Employment Program”, which aims to invest in infrastructure and other new government programs Billions of dollars.
Like the current Minister of Transport, Buttigieg, Minister of Energy Granholm (Granholm) and Secretary of Commerce Raimondo (Raimondo), the panel members include the Minister of Housing and Urban Development Marcia L. Fudge (Marcia L Fudge) and Secretary of Labor Martin J. Walsh (Martin J. Walsh).
His job is to work with voters to promote infrastructure projects on Capitol Hill and across the country. They were chosen because they lead the agency responsible for overseeing the numerous recommendations in the work plan, including broadband, public housing, climate change and job training, and roads and bridges.
Although they are also former mayors or governors, Biden is currently facing local challenges across the country.
In fact, they have tried-and sometimes failed-to sell their infrastructure plans to the stubborn legislature or resist their own party members.
Raimundo said this dynamic reflects the current challenge of persuading moderate Democrats (such as Senator Joe Manchin III of West Virginia) to support Biden’s infrastructure plan.
