President's Message

Peter NarsavageCentral Ohio  Section Members:

One of the ways ASCE strives to protect the public health, safety, and welfare, is by advocating to our government on these issues. Three Central Ohio ASCE section members attended the 2019 legislative fly-in at Washington, D.C. this past weekend - Jim Pajk, Brooks Vogel, and Daniel Pradel. They were there to meet with our representatives and senators to discuss the state of America's infrastructure. Meanwhile, in Ohio we finally have some serious discussion about providing additional funding for infrastructure through the sale of gasoline and diesel fuel. As we know, the need for infrastructure funding is not new and ASCE has been talking about it for many years. But persistence may finally be paying off. Please talk to your elected representatives about this need, as messages from their constituents are definitely influential. When I called, I had to leave a message, but a staffer called me back within a few days and we had a good discussion. I urge you to do the same. The ASCE sections in Ohio act together to advocate in state government under the banner of the Ohio Council. Recently we provided support for engineering licensure and the motor fuel tax in the statehouse. We are looking for more participants on Ohio Council and have open positions for Central Ohio Section representatives on the council. Our next meeting is in Columbus on April 5. If you are curious, please contact me to learn more.

Finally, every year we look to grant two awards - the Outstanding Civil Engineer of Central Ohio and the Outstanding Section Member of ASCE Central Ohio. I would love to hear who you think is deserving of one of these awards.
