Gateway Investment worth it for Newark and Amazon

Gateway investment worth it for Newark and Amazon

Amazon’s proposed second North American headquarters could elevate Newark to a rightful place as an important peer to Philadelphia, New York and Boston. But in addition to a great workforce, a dynamic region and a comprehensive incentive plan, one of the big draws for Amazon is Newark’s proximity to New York City.

Newark – the only place with world-class infrastructure that offers a huge savings over other Northeast Corridor cities – offers Amazon accessibility to exceptional cultural assets and even the opportunity to further stimulate them.

I would argue that Newark is a no-brainer for Amazon, but I fear for one thing: Funding for the Gateway tunnel project has become a political football between the red Trump administration and a pair of blue states.

The lack of a clear funding pathway may create a gray area in Newark’s bid to win Amazon’s “HQ2.” If we are willing to put $5 billion into attracting Amazon alone, how much is Gateway worth to the region?

It’s something to think about as we define priorities going forward.

Gateway’s limbo hurts not only Newark; it hurts the New Jersey suburbs that need a boost in demand for housing. It hurts the Meadowlands warehouse districts and small businesses that are starved for a new economic driver. It hurts NJ Transit, it hurts Amtrak, it hurts the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey – all of which contribute bones to the greatest infrastructure skeleton in the world, bones so brittle that a complete failure is a real threat not only to New Jersey’s economy but also to national security.

As a state, we are not blameless in the condition of our infrastructure. We were kicking the can down the road long before Hurricane Sandy, deferring maintenance and ignoring warning signs.

But we have committed the necessary resources for our share of the Gateway plan and we need the federal government to now commit to its share. Our region contributes benefits to the national economy that dwarf the needed federal investment in Gateway.

If threats to public health and national security are not enough to overcome the Trump administration’s seeming intent to undermine our region, with a project such as Amazon in the balance, there is all the more urgency for our lawmakers here and in Washington to prioritize Gateway or deal with much bigger problems later.

Our Statement on the Passing of State Senator Jim Whelan Posted by On Aug 22, 2017 In Blog


“The labor community has lost a true champion and ally this evening, and I have lost a friend. Jim fought beside our hardworking men and women every day – his leadership on the issues will not be forgotten and his legacy of progress in Atlantic City and throughout New Jersey will live on. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this dark time.” – Greg Lalevee, Business Manager of International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 825.

The New Moynihan Train Hall Posted by On Aug 17, 2017 In Blog
Donald J Pliner Made Black Ballet Donald Flats Made in Italy J Women's US 8.5 M 1907258

Today, Greg Lalevee, Chairman of the Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative and Business Manager of IUOE Local 825, issued the following statement after Governor Cuomo’s Press Conference Discussing the New Moynihan Station:

“I’m pleased to see the much-needed progress New York has made in overhauling and upgrading a portion of the Penn Station complex. Coupled with essential repairs to Penn Station’s existing infrastructure, the new Moynihan Train Hall will help improve operations at the station, expand capacity, create good-paying jobs and generate economic activity for New Yorkers. This long-awaited train hall – two decades in the making – honors the legacy of Senator Moynihan, who first conceived of the idea and never got to see it come to fruition.

Let this be a first step in the essential overhaul of our region’s infrastructure systems, starting with our critical rail infrastructure. For too long, underinvestment and poor planning have wreaked havoc on the New York metro area’s rail systems, which carry millions of commuters and are vitally important for commerce, quality of life and travel in our region.

I urge Governor Cuomo and our elected officials to continue this investment by working to secure long-term, dedicated funding to repair, replace and improve Penn Station and other elements of our failing rail network. I’m heartened by today’s progress and I hope it represents a turning point in our commitment to our infrastructure systems; it’s about time New Yorkers had a 21st-century rail system they can be proud of.”

Increase New York’s Access to Natural Gas Posted by On Aug 14, 2017 In Blog

In a recent Op-Ed in the Times Union, Heather Briccetti – President and CEO of the Business Council of New York State Inc. – detailed two pressing issues facing New York State: the need for quality, well-paying jobs and access to affordable and reliable energy. New Yorkers for Affordable Energy, a coalition of labor, business and community leaders, is off to an impressive start on both of these issues. Road to Repair is excited to join the coalition’s efforts in their fight to expand natural gas access and to use it as a driver for bringing new businesses and jobs to the Empire State.

As demand for natural gas across the state continues to increase, it is imperative for businesses to shift towards clean, affordable natural gas. This is an anticipated move for a majority of our country as the U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates the demand for natural gas will increase 40 percent nationally over the next 10 years, double the growth from the past 10 years.

However, despite this anticipated increased demand, New York continues to back away from investing in natural gas infrastructure projects. If special interests continue to stall much-needed energy infrastructure projects, over the next four years the state will lose 17,400 jobs and $1.6 billion, according to a recent report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce detailing the current state of New York’s economy.

Increased energy infrastructure investment by the state is a solution that can solve two problems at once: create more jobs that help boost economic activity throughout the region while increasing the state’s depleted energy reserves.

Road to Repair is dedicated to building a better tristate region through infrastructure investments, and that’s why we proudly and fully support New Yorkers for Affordable Energy’s efforts to increase the state’s access to natural gas.

New Jersey infrastructure group sets eyes on New York Posted by On Jul 28, 2017 In Blog

This article originally appeared on POLITICO, written by Marie J. French and David Giambusso

ALBANY — A New Jersey advocacy group that backed a successful increase of the state’s gas tax is planning an expansion into parts of New York to push for all types of infrastructure spending from transportation to water to energy.

The Road to Repair campaign, backed by the Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative 825, wants to increase public awareness around the need for infrastructure investment, said Greg Lalevee, chairman of the group. The group will focus on Westchester County and the Hudson Valley, where the labor-management group already has members. 

“We’re advocating for all kinds of infrastructure — roads, bridges, highways, power development, water infrastructure, gas infrastructure, power generation — pretty much everything,” Lalevee said. “A lot of this is to build public awareness; I don’t think the education is really done.”

PSE&G announces five-year program to upgrade New Jersey’s natural gas infrastructure Posted by On Jul 28, 2017 In Blog

Statement from Greg Lalevee, Chairman of the Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative

“This is a smart move for New Jersey and a critical upgrade to our aging natural gas infrastructure that will create jobs, improve natural gas service and protect New Jersey’s residents from dangerous gas leaks. The proposed program will create thousands of well-paying, full-time jobs across 11 counties in New Jersey, adding a crucial economic benefit to the important advances in safety and delivery PSE&G has proposed. Infrastructure investments such as these are important job creators, and other utilities should follow PSE&G’s lead to build a brighter economic future for our state.   

I urge our utilities to upgrade their infrastructure and work with state, county and local officials to prioritize these sorely-needed projects. Modernizing New Jersey’s crumbling infrastructure must be a top priority for elected officials, service providers and elected officials alike. I’m confident that we can work to secure dedicated funding and a long-term commitment to New Jersey’s energy systems that will ensure a safe, sustainable and economically beneficial future for all New Jerseyans.”

Statement from Mark Longo, Director of the Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative

 “As the labor management fund that supports the over 6500 members of the Operating Engineers Local 825, we stand firmly behind the announced project from PSE&G to upgrade significant portions of their natural gas infrastructure. This $2.7 Billion investment represents a commitment to delivering the most affordable energy to their customers. An investment of this magnitude – in real dollars, future economic benefits and dedication to safety – is to be applauded.”

Improving natural gas pipelines will boost NJ’s economy Posted by On Jun 22, 2017 In Uncategorized

Researchers at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy analyzed the economic impact of the proposed Northeast Supply Enhancement project and the results are clear: Investing in the region’s energy infrastructure creates jobs and boosts the economy.

Our region’s appetite for natural gas is growing and the Northeast Supply Enhancement project would meet the increasing demand by expanding the existing Transco pipeline system. According to the Rutgers University study, this project would pump $239.9 million in economic activity into New Jersey alone. In addition to generating $16.4 million in local and state taxes, the project would create 2,411 good-paying jobs for New Jerseyans during construction. Once the pipeline is operational, more than $11 million in additional annual local property taxes will be paid to local municipal and county governments.

Investing in infrastructure is smart policy, plain and simple.



Road to Repair: Penn Station Derailments Posted by On Apr 27, 2017 In Blog

The recent NJ Transit & Amtrak train derailments are just a sign of what’s to come if we continue to ignore our transportation infrastructure. Greg Lalevee, Chairman of ELEC discusses the importance of investing in New Jersey’s infrastructure.

Hurricane Sandy was a wake-up call we must take seriously Posted by On Apr 24, 2017 In Blog

Almost five full years after Hurricane Sandy, we’re still working to get our infrastructure systems—that were flooded and over-burdened during one of the worst storms in recent memory—back up and running. Last week, the federal government announced it will spend almost $240 million to help repair damage to the Holland Tunnel caused by the storm.

The funding will allow the Port Authority to move forward with repairs caused by flooding and saltwater damage to the tunnel, which sees around 300,000 trips daily.

Hurricane Sandy revealed a myriad of weaknesses in our infrastructure systems we could have never anticipated. From widespread power outages to cell phone tower failures, and flooding that shut down major roadways and public transit systems, Hurricane Sandy exploited all of the weaknesses in our major infrastructure systems.

While we have made repairs and upgrades over the past several years, there is still much more yet to do. Our successful efforts to replenish the Transportation Trust Fund last year are a step in the right direction. However, if we don’t do more to take a long-view and create funding sources that invest in infrastructure systems for generations to come rather than a few years ahead, it’s only a matter of time before the next severe storm cripples the region once again and undercuts our economic growth for years to come.

$4 Million in Transportation Trust Fund Money to Provide Relief to Carlstadt Area Drivers Posted by On Apr 10, 2017 In Blog

Thanks to the Transportation Trust Fund (TTF), which the Road to Repair campaign and the Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative (ELEC) played a leading role in passing, drivers on Route 4 in the Teaneck area will finally see some relief from dodging potholes over the winter months. Carlstadt announced $4 million of TTF funding will be put towards a road-and-drainage rehabilitation project that will improve area roadways. Carlstadt’s public works director called it “the biggest project of its kind in borough history.”

Besides benefitting area drivers—who have complained about teeth-chattering road conditions over the past few months—the money will put road crews to work making the repairs over the next few months patching roads and repairing entrance and exit ramps. The funding comes as a result of lawmakers’ and ELEC’s support of a measure to reinfuse the TTF with $16 billion in state funds over the next eight years. This important funding would not have been approved without the leadership of Senator Paul Sarlo and Senator Steve Oroho. The money boosts annual spending on the state’s road, bridge, and rail infrastructure by $400 million.
