WASHINGTON, D.C. – Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond today attended a special invitation only meeting at the White House.

A select group of mayors from across the country met with D.J. Gribbin, Special Assistant to the President for Infrastructure, during a meeting to discuss infrastructure.

President Donald Trump has made the country’s infrastructure a key emphasis. According to a White House fact sheet, the United States ranks No. 12 in the world in overall infrastructure, behind countries like Japan, Germany, the Netherlands and France. The president’s goal for infrastructure is to seek long-term reforms on how infrastructure projects are regulated, funded, delivered and maintained.

“This is a great day for the City of Broken Arrow,” Thurmond said. “Being part of this discussion will allow us to make sure that great things continue to happen in Broken Arrow. Taking care of our infrastructure is critical to the City’s successful growth and continued prosperity.”

City Manager Michael Spurgeon also joined Thurmond during the White House meeting.
