In a speech
Thursday at East Toledo’s Tribute Memorial Park, former Ohio governor and
Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Ted Strickland outlined a plan to heighten
government focus on infrastructure and criticized his opponent, U.S. Sen. Rob
Portman (R., Ohio), for not supporting similar projects to create jobs.
Mr. Strickland described his proposal
to create a national “infrastructure bank” to finance large investments in
public infrastructure, and singled out five areas in need of major spending:
broadband Internet, water, energy, intermodal transportation, and roads,
bridges, and public transportation.
The site he
chose for the address honors five workers who died during the $237 million
construction of Veterans’ Glass City Skyway Bridge that opened in June,
“America needs a big and bold idea that
will set the stage for Ohio’s and America’s future economic success,” Mr.
Strickland said. “We need to create good-paying jobs, we need to help working
people get ahead in life, and we need to rebuild America.”
He highlighted intermodal transportation — rail, shipping,
and port systems — as particularly important for Toledo’s economy, given the
city’s reliance on its port.
To finance the
federal loans, Mr. Strickland said lawmakers would have to rewrite the tax code
to crack down on “corporate inversions”: a tax loophole that allows large
companies to avoid paying taxes by moving their official headquarters abroad but
keeping most of their operations in the United States. He said eliminating
corporate inversions will allow the government to generate an additional $40
billion in tax revenue over 10 years.
Mr. Strickland was joined by Toledo Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson; Tina
Skeldon Wozniak, president of the Lucas County commissioners; and county
Commissioners Pete Gerken and Carol Contrada, who introduced the former
“Ted actually understands the
challenges that are facing Ohioans who work for a living, because that’s where
he came from,” Mrs. Contrada said. “And he knows that communities like ours need
the resources for infrastructure in order to help working families get ahead and
to help our community succeed.”
accused Mr. Portman of supporting budget proposals that cut spending on
infrastructure and for being beholden to special-interest groups controlled by
wealthy campaign donors.
