Jacobs Suspends All Political Contributions

01/13/2021

DALLAS, Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:J) has suspended all political contributions in the wake of last week's violence that took place at the United States Capitol.

In a statement from Chair and CEO Steve Demetriou, he said "The peaceful and respectful transition of power is fundamental to our democracy. The disturbing events at the U.S. Capitol put our elected leaders at risk and undermined the fundamental democratic principles of free speech, peaceful protest, and open and free elections. In light of these events, Jacobs' Good Government Fund is suspending all political contributions." Demetriou continued, "We have a long history of supporting the U.S. Government and urge Congress to work together to unify our great nation."
