Chamber Advocates for S.F. in D.C.

The Chamber led more than two dozen business leaders and civic officials including Supervisors London Breed and Jane Kim, San Francisco Recreation and Park Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Deputy General Manager Michael Carlin, and representatives from the San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) and San Francisco Travel Association (SF Travel) to advocate for San Francisco during CityTrip DC last week. The delegation met with more than a dozen top lawmakers and department officials to express support for infrastructure investment, skilled worker immigration reform, and policies to help boost healthful living, international travel and commerce in San Francisco. “Federal lawmakers are aligned with the Chamber when it comes to transportation and water infrastructure,” said Chamber President & CEO Bob Linscheid. “Unfortunately, partisan gridlock continues to be a significant obstacle to progress on important national issues such as immigration reform, climate change and affordable housing. The Chamber thanks all the delegates and sponsors – United Airlines, Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Dignity Health and Rickshaw Bagworks –who joined us on this year’s trip making San Francisco’s business voice heard on Capitol Hill.” Read more.
