Mayor's Vision: Mayor Lee Sets 2013 Priorities in State of the City Address
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today delivered his 2013 State of the City Address at College Track, a community-based organization in the City's Bayview that prepares San Francisco youth for college. Joined by civic, labor, business and community leaders, Mayor Lee outlined his vision for San Francisco's continuing recovery and success with investments in job creation, workforce development, housing, transportation and education in his first State of the City Address.
"The State of our great City is vital, resurgent and strong," said Mayor Lee. "We invested in job creation, workforce development and we made tough choices on everything from pensions to budget tradeoffs. And, we did this the San Francisco way, through consensus and collaboration. We put the people's interests ahead of City Hall politics and, as a result, we are stronger. We are also stronger because of the creativity and perseverance of our people, because of the fiscally responsible path we have taken; and by embracing innovation and new ideas that have, in turn, attracted new jobs and new investment in every neighborhood of our City."
