San Diego Mayor Recaps City Activities Illustrating Power of ‘Yes’

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer describes for the CalChamber Board of Directors on March 4 how the city has come back from “the brink of financial ruin” due to bipartisan, citywide agreement on reforms such as adding an independent city auditor and voter approval of a plan to replace the underfunded pension system with a 401(k)-style system. To foster a skilled workforce, the city is investing in after school programs in underserved areas, expanding a public-private partnership to expose more students to science, technology, engineering and mathematics education, and offering an online high school degree program.
