To make their point, equipment dealers, manufacturing representatives, labor leaders and others will stage a rally of the Start Us Up USA! campaign on the National Mall against a backdrop of idle construction equipment and surrounded by a sea of 5,500 orange flags - each one representing 100 jobs already lost in this industry. The equipment caravan, displaying Start Us Up USA! banners and waving orange flags, will parade the major streets surrounding the National Mall and Capitol Hill throughout mid-day after cruising past the campaign rally in progress.
Featured speakers this year include Bobby Tudor, Chairman & CEO of Tudor Pickering & Holt, LLC; Danny Weingeist, Co-Managing Partner of Kayne Anderson Energy Funds; John Weinzierl, Managing Director of Natural Gas Partners; and Brent Abrahm, President & CEO here at Accruit.
