BOMA San Francisco and The Seligman Group hosted a reception honoring San Francisco Treasurer Jose Cisneros last night.
BOMA San Francisco supports Mr. Cisneros as he runs for re-election for his second term as San Francisco's City Treasurer. In his speech to the reception attendees, he mentioned a few of his many accomplishments over the last 4 years:
- Under his charge, property tax delinquency rates are the lowest in the history of San Francisco;
- Mr. Cisneros initiated the Bank on San Francisco program to encourage low-wage workers in the City to avoid high-cost check cashing operations. Bank on San Francisco is the first of its kind in the nation, and is now being emulated in cites across the country;
- The City of San Francisco has the highest bond rating of any city in California;
- The City's investments are safe and are generating high returns.
