Heart of the City - LB College Promise

Long Beach 3.0 in the Los Angeles Times
I have long been an advocate of the benefits technology and innovation can bring to Long Beach, both by creating more efficient and transparent government, and by attracting cutting edge companies to set up business in our city. So I am especially glad that this vision for Long Beach as a technology and innovation hub was featured in the Los Angeles Times yesterday.

Free Admission this Saturday for Formula E Race

This Saturday, Long Beach will become one of the few American cities to host one of the most exciting new events in sports: The ePrix, a formula car grand prix event for electric vehicles.

Long Beach joins global capitols like London, Buenos Aires and Beijing in the inaugural season of Formula E, the FIA's new, global open-wheel championship using fully-electric race cars.


Supporting Small Businesses

Last week I was proud to sign our new Small Business Recruitment, Retention and Growth Incentive program into law. This new initiative was brought forth by Councilmembers Suzie Price and Stacy Mungo, and provides tax credits to small businesses that relocate to Long Beach, open a new location here, or hire more employees. It's a great way to support our local economy, and to broadcast the message that the City of Long Beach is a perfect place to open or expand your business.


Our Ports are Moving Again

I just received the good news that our west coast dockworkers and shippers have reached an agreement and are ready to get back to work. This is great news for our country and great news for Long Beach. Now we can move forward and get to work.
