sf.citi Members meet with Former Supervisor and Mayoral Candidate Angela Alioto
In the second Lunch and Learn of 2018 at Google, we welcomed former supervisor and mayoral candidate Angela Alioto. Alioto engaged in a dynamic discussion with sf.citi members on her plan to clean up San Francisco. In our conversation with the former supervisor, we discussed key issues facing the city, including the state of the homelessness crisis, creating clearer communication between tech and government, bolstering city beautification efforts, and the need for more efficient fiscal spending. Alioto emphasized the importance of this election in influencing the future direction of San Francisco. sf.citi’s Lunch and Learn series offers a unique opportunity for members to interact with and ask important questions to local leaders. In this busy 2018 election cycle, we look forward to hosting more discussions with mayoral candidates, elected officials, and other City leaders.
