GOP Leader Tells Metals Industry’s Top Executives: “It’s Up to You

Salt Lake City Utah, May 2, 2016 — Former Senator, Republican Party Chairman, U.S. Trade Representative and Labor Secretary Bill Brock says one way to heal this country’s political divisions and get the economy moving again is for metals industry leaders to step up.

The GOP statesman was the opening keynote speaker in a “fireside chat” with MSCI President and CEO M. Robert Weidner, III, at the Metals Service Center Institutes’ (MSCI) Annual Meeting at the Grand America Hotel, April 30 to May 2. “You’ve got to work with your Congressional representatives to open things up,” Brock told the MSCI audience. “You need to know the members of Congress in your district, so you can call them or walk into their office and explain your problems.”

Brock noted that when he was in Washington, “we were a community of people who believed in this country and worked hard to get things done. Now, we are not talking to each other anymore,” he said.

“Maybe you can help get a democrat and a republican in your area to meet and come to grips with one of the real problems you are having,” Brock said. “They need your help, they can’t do it by themselves.”
