Following the Money

Montgomery County, Maryland, April 2009

As those of us at the Learning Worlds Institute became interested in telling stories about how communities and workers would be affected by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, we decided to investigate this further.

We learned that the contractor awarded the project, now designated as New Hampshire Avenue Project 650, was American Infrastructure, and contacted their Director of Government Affairs, Mark P. Compton, to find out more information. He put us in contact with Charlie Gischler and David Buck from the Maryland State Highway Administration, who connected us to the folks actually handling the project in Montgomery County.
