Legislation & Capital Outlay

TRACKER

"I'm an altruistic, active participant in change. And I have always held aspirations that we have to always look to the very best we can be. Otherwise, why work towards anything? The bar has to be lifted, not unrealistically, but incrementally so that we are constantly on a trajectory forward."
