GSEC is working 24/7 to strengthen and diversify our region’s economy and we’re supporting that effort in every way we can. By bringing together all of the key stakeholders in the region—private companies, local governments, universities and more–GSEC has created a united front focused on making Greater Sacramento a go-to destination for innovative employers and talented individuals. We’re already seeing strong results and I’m proud to join leaders from across the region to support GSEC’s efforts and our collective vision. The Greater Sacramento region’s future is bright and filled with promise. In fact, I don’t think there has ever been a better time to live and work in Greater Sacramento.
