Business Reps, Local Pols Off to Washington
The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce is sending a delegation to Washington, D.C. this week, to “advocate, promote and align support for key regional priorities, including water and energy, border-related issues, immigration, military and Homeland Security, technology, hospitality, housing, education and workforce, and transportation and infrastructure,” according to a press release.
The guest list includes quite a few local politicians: County Supervisor Ron Roberts, state assembly member Marty Block, and city council members David Alvarez, Lorie Zapf, and Kevin Faulconer all join Chamber president and CEO Ruben Barrales, board chairman Vince Mudd, and a gathering of local business owners in their travels.
The “One Region, One Voice,” trip left town Sunday night and will be in D.C. through Wednesday. Updates are said to be forthcoming via the Chamber’s Twitter feed.
