Mayor Garcia's 2019 State of the City Address

Release Date: 2019-01-16

Last night I gave my 5th State of the City address and my first one in my second term as Mayor. I discussed our historic low unemployment rate, crime rates dropping, and investments in infrastructure.

I also announced new major initiatives such as expanding our financial reserves, opening a city-wide homeless shelter, building more affordable homes, and planning for the future with a new 2030 Long Beach strategic plan.
