BOMA San Francisco leaders met with Congresswoman Jackie Speier at the BOMA San Francisco office recently to discuss issues she is working on and the political climate in Washington D.C.

Lastly, Congresswoman Speier is worried about the growing disparities between those who have financial resources and those who do not in our country. She is concerned that the economic recovery is only benefiting those at the top of economic spectrum. Speier mentioned that there should be a constitutional amendment prohibiting members of Congress from being paid until they passed a budget - similar to what the voters in California passed several years ago for state legislators.
The members of BOMA San Francisco were impressed with Congresswoman Speier’s knowledge of the issues, and her candor in assessing what she believes the current Congress can accomplish. BOMA San Francisco members are grateful for her leadership in Washington D.C., and wishes more elected officials shared her desire to collaborate, compromise, and focus on public policy that will move our country forward.
