Supervisor Scott Wiener Honored as BOMA San Francisco's Public Official of the Year

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Supervisor Scott Wiener was honored with BOMA San Francisco's Public Official of the Year award for 2013 at the October 24th BOMA general membership luncheon at the City Club.  The award is given annually to an individual who epitomizes BOMA San Francisco's Public Policy Principals.

Scott believes in improving San Francisco's foundation: maintaining and rebuilding our infrastructure, reforming and revitalizing our transportation systems, ensuring neighborhood safety, supporting our system of public education, and creating an atmosphere of job creation so that we build our tax base. Focusing on these core issues will allow San Francisco to flourish as the beacon of innovation, hope, and tolerance that draws people from all over the world to live, work, and visit the City.

In his acceptance speech, Supervisor Wiener kindly mentioned his long-term, collaborative relationship with BOMA San Francisco members and staff.  A recent example of this was the two year discussion with BOMA members and various stakeholders to amend the existing mobile food facilities (food truck) law.  Our members appreciate Mr. Wiener's intrepid leadership in helping all parties come to an agreement.

Mr. Wiener also spoke about how he is focused on addressing the long term issues that are plaguing San Francisco.  For example, rising housing costs are at the top of his list, "affordable housing for all residents is important to the overall economic and social vitality of the City," said Wiener.  Funding and improving public transportation is another matter Supervisor Wiener is championing at City Hall.
