Highlight Infrastructure on Social Media

We need your assistance in illustrating the need for infrastructure funding. It is critical that New Jersey municipalities highlight infrastructure needs and successes on social media and tag their members of congress.

We need your assistance in illustrating the need for infrastructure funding. It is critical that New Jersey municipalities highlight infrastructure needs and successes on social media and tag their members of congress. It’s a simple process:

1.    Identify an infrastructure need or success in your municipality, such as a road or bridge in need of repair, or a recently completed water utility project.

2.    Post the pictures along with a brief caption on Twitter and Facebook. If there a news article, please include it.

3.    Use the hashtags #RebuildWithUs and #LeadWithInfrastructure

Showcasing municipal success stories and highlighting continued needs will help push Congress to take action to pass legislation investing in future infrastructure. Examples of tweets and other social media postings can be viewed on the League’s Social Media Sample Page.

Here are a few examples of tweets:

@CityofNewarkNJ lead line replacement program is almost done removing more than 19K pipes in 26 months and is a national model. https://tinyurl.com/ksrrp934 #RebuildWithUs #LeadWithInfrastructure #Pipes #Water @Senator Menendez @CoryBooker @RepDonaldPayne @NJ_League

@CityofCamdenGov completed the Von Nieda Park Stormwater Management & Park Improvement Project to mitigate flooding in Cramer Hill Neighborhood. #RebuildWithUs #LeadWithInfrastructure #Stormwater #Flooding @SenatorMenendez @SenBooker @DonaldNorcross @NJ_League
