Upon his election, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas created a transition team with a mission far beyond the usual task of selecting staff members and setting short-term goals. He called on leaders from education, philanthropy, community groups, labor and the private sector to build a foundation for elevating living standards and empowering communities throughout the Second District.
In areas from budget reform to transportation to housing and worker training, these experts created a set of initiatives to accelerate economic and social progress in the district. This document outlines their work, and sets an early agenda for upward mobility that we expect to become even more ambitious as we move forward.
