Four AGC Members Running for Congress

AGC of America finds itself at a unique intersection of industry and politics as four members step into the realm of congressional candidacy.

These individuals, hailing from diverse backgrounds within the construction sector, have demonstrated not only leadership within their respective companies but also a commitment to shaping the legislative landscape. The convergence of construction industry leaders into the political arena reflects a broader recognition of the critical role that the AGC and its members play in shaping policies that impact job creation, economic growth, and the future of the nation.
