Mayor Issues Statement On President’s State Of The Union Address


SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee issued a statement in regards to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday, January 28. Mayor Lee was in attendance at the U.S. Capitol where he sat near First Lady Michelle Obama in the viewing box.

“I couldn’t agree more with President Obama’s laser focus on economic opportunity for all American families. As our President outlined his priorities for our country, he has set his sights on creating more jobs, growing the overall U.S.economy, improving the health of all Americans, passing immigration reform and moving our nation forward.

I was truly honored to represent the residents of San Francisco this evening, and I thank the President and the First Lady for their invitation.

I look forward to supporting the President’s goals in San Francisco by doubling down on an aggressive affordability agenda to build 30,000 new homes by 2020, raise the minimum wage and create and sustain good jobs for all San Franciscans.”
