NEMWI Announces Steve LaTourette as New Board Chair

Last week, NEMWI welcomed former Representative Steve LaTourette as the new Chair of NEMWI’s Board of Directors. NEMWI announced the appointment at its annual “Reception for the Northeast-Midwest Region,” a celebration of the extraordinary Northeast-Midwest region and the bipartisan Congressional and Senate Coalitions that come together on its behalf. Prior to retiring from office last year, Steve LaTourette was the Republican Co-Chair of the Northeast-Midwest Congressional Coalition. On accepting this new leadership role, Mr. LaTourette said, “The only way to truly solve nagging rust-belt problems, like job loss, decaying transportation and water infrastructure, and environmental degradation is through bi-partisan and regional collaboration. My first order of business will be to find a Democratic partner, hopefully a former State executive office-holder from the region, to join me in leading the Institute.”
