Senator Kerry and Mayor Curtatone answered questions about the project at the end of the press conference (towards the end of the video above); afterwards, Senator Kerry spoke to reporters who asked him to give a capsule summary of the significance of the project (video clip below). He did a good job of spelling out why this is a big deal. I’d like to see more of our elected officials out there talking to people and explaining the significance of projects supported by federal money. It’s important so that people know where the tax money is going and so they know that our leaders really are taking concrete action to get things moving in the midst of this crisis.
