We are proud to support the new West Mission Bay Bridge project by keeping the community informed!

I was pleased to join Council President Jen Campbell and construction workers this morning to dedicate the new West Mission Bay Bridge. This project creates new vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian lanes over the San Diego River. I’m grateful for the construction workers that are helping us build a multimodal transportation network for our great city. More at http://bit.ly/2XhW1CQ.

We joined 60 other people simulating the lives of very-low income families in a Poverty Simulation event hosted by our client Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego.
