Watch The State of the City

Release Date: 2020-01-15

Last night, I delivered my sixth annual State of the City to the City Council and the community at the Terrace Theater. As I reported then: The state of this city is strong. We are experiencing unprecedented growth in Long Beach, with tremendous opportunity still ahead. Crime is at or near historic lows, we are in the middle of an economic development boom, and our cultural life is thriving.

I also spoke to some of the serious challenges we are facing as a city including homelessness and housing affordability.

I love being your mayor and it’s truly an honor to serve the people of this city.
