C&S chairman emeritus Orrin “Mac” MacMurray spoke at Syracuse City Hall on December 9 to support the efforts of Rebuild NY Now, a group that is calling for the state to use budget surplus money to invest in the state’s infrastructure. In an article published in the CNY Business Journal, Mac noted that the city of Syracuse has, on average, “hundreds” of water-main breaks and Onondaga County has “hundreds” of bridges that are “deficient and need significant attention.” Tying in the concept of spending money to make money, he noted that, “Well, a corporation invests money in order to improve its productivity and I would suggest that in government we invest money to improve our productivity as a society, but also to protect the public health, welfare, and safety of our citizens.”
