Senator Barbara Boxer, Congressman Eric Swalwell, and Mayor Jean Quan to appear at Bay Planning Coalition’s May 3rd Decision Makers Conference
The Bay Planning Coalition’s 26th annual Decision Makers Conference (DMC) – Fueling California’s Economic Engine and Jobs: The Importance of Trade to Northern California, will include addresses from US Senator Barbara Boxer (CA), US Congressman Eric Swalwell (CA-15) and Oakland Mayor Jean Quan.
Senator Boxer, who is serving in her fourth term in the Senate, is the chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Senator Boxer introduced the bipartisan Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2013 (S. 601), which promotes investment to strengthen the nation’s critical water resources infrastructure. She also sits on the Senate Commerce Committee and Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Bay Planning Coalition (BPC) is honored to have her at the DMC to speak on the important topics of the WRDA bill, trade, and economic growth in our region.
Congressman Eric Swalwell, an East Bay native, is a freshman member of the US House of Representatives, and serves on the Committee on Homeland Security and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, and is the Ranking Member of its Subcommittee on Energy. Swalwell brings new energy, ideas, and a problem-solving spirit to the United States Congress, and BPC welcomes him as the Featured Luncheon Speaker at the 2013 DMC.
Oakland Mayor Jean Quan is the first woman and the first Asian American to be elected Mayor of Oakland. A tireless champion of the City of Oakland, she has worked to improve public safety, advance economic development, and ensure a sustainable future for the City of Oakland. BPC is proud to have Mayor Quan deliver the Welcoming Address at the 2013 DMC.
The 2013 Decision Makers Conference will take place on Friday, May 3rd, at the Pavilion at Scott’s Seafood in Jack London Square, Oakland. For more information on the DMC, please visit bayplanningcoalition.org, or call (510) 768-8310.
