National League of Cities Honors Clear Channel Outdoor with “Service to Cities Award” for Transportation Infrastructure Support
Municipal Leaders Recognize Company’s Use of Digital Billboards to Raise Awareness of the Rebuild With Us Campaign
LOS ANGELES – November 12, 2018 – The National League of Cities (NLC) presented the Service to Cities Award to Clear Channel Outdoor this past weekend for its outstanding contributions to cities across the nation. Through Clear Channel Outdoor’s support of NLC’s 2018 infrastructure campaign, Rebuild With Us, the company raised awareness of the country’s critical infrastructure gap and helped municipal governments fight for federal investment.
“America’s growing infrastructure gap is one of the most pressing concerns for our nation’s cities and towns,” said Clarence Anthony, CEO and executive director of the National League of Cities (NLC). “You can see evidence of our aging infrastructure in our frequent watermain breaks, potholed roads, and structurally deficient bridges. Clear Channel Outdoor has been a tremendous partner in helping us raise awareness around our need for reliable infrastructure, which is critical to sustaining a thriving national economy.”
Awarded at NLC’s 2018 City Summit Conference in Los Angeles, the Service to Cities award is given to NLC partners who have demonstrated a strong commitment to building stronger, more innovative and resilient cities and towns.
“We’re honored to receive the Service to Cities award and contribute to our longtime partner’s efforts to address this critical issue through Rebuild With Us,” said Scott Wells, CEO, Clear Channel Outdoor Americas. “Rebuilding and investing in America’s infrastructure is essential to support the needs of a modern, innovative economy and the needs of our local communities. As a company committed to both, we understand the value and importance of safe roads and bridges and we’re proud to lend the power of our digital media to deliver this crucial message.”
The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans. www.nlc.org
