District 10 Merchants Pack the House

Merchants from Bayview Hunters Point, Potrero Hill, Visitacion Valley and other nearby neighborhoods joined the Chamber and District 10 Supervisor Malia Cohen Monday evening at the Chamber’s Neighborhood Business Summit at Radio Africa & Kitchen. Over 60 people, in conjunction with neighborhood merchant associations, networked, shared information and discussed issues facing local businesses including transportation, neighborhood commerce and beautification. The Supervisor also thanked the Chamber’s Public Policy team for working so closely alongside her office on a variety of issues, especially the Fair Hire Ordinance, and for bringing together local merchants and constituents in her district. “The Summit reminds us about how alive, vibrant and diverse the business community is and more importantly much the southeast sector has to offer; from small restaurants to large scale bio tech companies, the room was filled with stakeholders who are critical to the health of our local economy,” said Supervisor Cohen after the event. “It was wonderful to see the relationships and partnerships being made in the room. This is an event that needs to happen in every neighborhood in our City.” The Chamber will host the next Neighborhood Business Summit in June. View photos.
