The COVID-19 pandemic has severely stressed federal, state and local budgets, but vital improvements to the country’s infrastructure have not vanished. The challenge of addressing those needs in a new fiscal normal also holds potential for cities and states to emerge stronger by applying innovative approaches.

On Thursday, Sept. 17 at 11:00 a.m. ET, Washington Post Live will bring together government officials including Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.), Plano, Tex. Mayor Harry LaRosiliere and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, industry leaders and entrepreneurs for a live event focused on how cities and states are utilizing data analytics and AI in their efforts to transform America’s infrastructure and foster a new resilience.

In a segment presented by Siemens, Francis Suarez, Mayor of the City of Miami, and second vice president at The US Conference of Mayors, along with Barbara Humpton, CEO of Siemens USA, discuss the top finding of a joint Harris Poll focusing on immediate and long-term infrastructure and technology priorities as mayors push for resilience and recovery amid expected pandemic-driven budget declines.

This event is presented by Siemens.
