It keeps our roads paved, our water clean, our goods moving, our economy growing.

On behalf of our member organizations, the Southern California Partnership for Jobs would like to thank Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas for his leadership in committing to fund critical infrastructure projects in his District, including the Crenshaw/LAX Line project, which will transform the Crenshaw Corridor, connect our public transit system to the LAX airport and create the Leimert Park Station, and the Vermont Corridor project, which will positively transform aging and dilapidated County-owned buildings in Koreatown, revitalizing the community and creating jobs at the same time.

Supervisor Ridley-Thomas knows that infrastructure isn’t a political buzzword – it means creating jobs that support families and improve the quality of life in Southern California. We are excited to work with Supervisor Ridley-Thomas on projects that will make our lives better every day by

  • FIXING OUR ROADS, including a commitment to funding projects that will ease traffic and repair roadways, shortening commute times and promoting goods movement.
  • CREATING MORE TRANSIT OPTIONS, giving Angelenos more choices while easing congestion and pollution.
  • CREATING JOBS, with hundreds of good-paying construction jobs resulting directly from these and other critical infrastructure investments.

We represent thousands of construction workers and construction firms, and we thank Supervisor Ridley-Thomas for his vision for investment in our region. We are especially enthusiastic about Supervisor Ridley-Thomas and MTA’s vision for the SEED Los Angeles School, a landmark educational facility that will help our region develop the skilled workforce needed to deliver on major transit infrastructure projects for decades to come.

We appreciate Supervisor Ridley-Thomas’s championing of these important initiatives, and look forward to working with him and his colleagues towards our common goal of creating jobs and making our neighborhoods a better place to live and work.
