Oakland, SF and San Jose Mayors Join Valley Projections “Clean and Green” Event

Mayor Ron Dellums joined San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed at the Silicon Valley Projections “Clean and Green” Event, hosted by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. The three mayors joined other notable Silicon Valley CEOs, and other distinguished public figures and environmental leaders in a panel discussion about how the Bay Area can work together on climate change.
“What is going to drive the growth of urban and metropolitan areas are the many challenges of global warming. As our cities grow exponentially, it is the mayors who are going to have to confront those issues, such as: planning along transit corridors or providing more public transportation. Bottom line, important decisions are going to have to be made.”
The group discussed a partnership aimed at helping the region do its part toward meeting the State of California’s goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
