 Strickland presents infrastructure plan

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, 2007.

“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 governor.

“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.”

Mr. Strickland 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.
