Yesterday at Ernest McBride High School, I joined LBUSD Superintendent Chris Steinhauser, LBCC President Eloy Oakley, and CSULB President Jane Conoley to announce a sweeping educational initiative. For the first time, the City became a signatory to the Long Beach College Promise, bringing the City into partnership with the three major educational institutions in Long Beach and expanding the mission of the Promise to include the goal of universal pre-school enrollment, doubling the number of internships in the city for Long Beach students, and expanding college scholarships and student support.
|Today I announced the appointment of 13 new commissioners to fill the remaining seats on five different commissions. The commissioners represent the diversity of Long Beach and come from all areas of the city.|
|Last night, the City Council adopted the FY15 budget for Long Beach. The Council adopted a responsible and thoughtful budget, which will put additional funds into our reserves, create a new economic development department, and provide added support to our libraries. It also includes significant support for infrastructure and public safety.|
|I am proud to announce the first commission appointment of my term as Mayor. Last week, I appointed former Deputy Attorney General Tracy Egoscue, to the Board of Harbor Commissioners, and last night, Ms. Egoscue was approved unanimously by the City Council.|
Commissioner Egoscue is an outstanding addition to our strong Harbor Commission.
|The City will host several public meetings for residents to provide input and feedback on the proposed developers for the new Civic Center. The first two scheduled are:|
Tuesday, October 14 at 4pm, Long Beach City Hall.
Tuesday November 11 at 4pm, Houghton Park
