CSPRC October Luncheon Meeting

Topic: Public Plumbing Meets Public Affairs: How MSD Keeps the Story Fresh

Presented by: Mark Bradley, StandPoint Public Affairs & Lance Lecomb, the Metropolitan Sewer District

What do you do when you have a project or cause which is largely out of the public eye? In the case of Project Clear, the Metropolitan Sewer District’s ongoing 4.7 billion infrastructure project, much of it is literally underground and at risk of getting little attention. Learn the strategies the MSD team is deploying to keep the public aware of the project and included in the process. Hear from both Lance Lecomb, the manager of public information and MSD spokesperson, and StandPoint Public Affairs founder Mark Bradley on engaging the public in a project so big it is hard to believe it still could get ignored.
