Mayor Issues Statement Regarding Governor Brown’s Balanced Budget For State


SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee released a statement on January 9 in response to Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed 2014-2015 balanced budget for the state.

“I congratulate Governor Brown for his leadership in building a budget proposal that balances long-term fiscal prudence with the need to invest in our State’s education and infrastructure. For years, the State’s budget has been a gloomy reminder of the negative impacts of a serious economic recession that has negatively affected our cities and our residents. But today, as we learn about the $10 billion commitment to education, the large re-investment in High Speed Rail, and the Governor’s commitment to Infrastructure Financing Districts, we are very hopeful about the direction the State is heading,” said Mayor Lee.
