Oakland Mayor Jean Quan highlighted new developments in Oakland that will help drive the Bay Area’s future at the 2012 Economic Summit hosted by the SF Business Times on February 14, 2012. Both Mayor Quan and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee were featured speakers.
"Oakland is on the Rise,” said Mayor Jean Quan in her first State of
the City address to the City of Oakland tonight. “It’s been a pretty good year for
Oakland, despite a few bumps.”
“Even while recovering from the worst national recession in decades and a
constant stream of state and federal cuts, we are making progress in jobs and
development. We are undergoing a renaissance in our thriving arts, cultural and
culinary scenes that reflects one of the most diverse cities in the world,” she said.
