State Lawmaker Invites Ideas for 2023 Legislative Agenda
Assemblymember Phil Ting will host an event in the neighborhood to gather feedback for his 2023 agenda.
Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, wants the public’s help to shape his priorities in Sacramento. To do just that, he’s hosting an event at the historic Geneva Powerhouse.
“As 2022 wraps up, I've begun putting together my legislative agenda for next year,” he said in a recent newsletter to constituents. “If you have any ideas or feedback, please attend my Community Coffee. I'd love to hear about them.”
Ting, who was first elected to the California Assembly in 2012, was sworn in for his sixth and final term in early December.
“I’ll continue to work on strengthening the state's economy that's inclusive of all families and prioritizing education, housing/homelessness, the environment and other pressing needs,” he said in a newsletter after he was sworn in.
As the assembly budget chair, Ting allocated $3.5 million in state funds toward renovating the Geneva Office Building and Powerhouse. While the powerhouse is now renovated and open to the public when its tenant Performing Arts Workshop makes it available, renovation of the much larger and important office building has not yet been started by the Recreation and Parks Department.
As budget chair, Ting oversaw historic surpluses.
Date: Saturday, Jan. 7, 2023
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: Geneva Powerhouse, 2301 San Jose Ave.
