You're Invited to a Special BOMA Reception for Supervisor Julie Christensen - March 16th

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Please consider attending a March 16th event that the BOMA SF- PAC is hosting for newly appointed Supervisor Julie Christensen.

The fundraiser is being held with BOMA member Scott Seligman (Seligman Western Enterprises) on the 40th floor of the Transamerica Pyramid from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. 

RSVP to Celeste Wolter at (347) 527-3368 or

The BOMA SF-PAC met with Julie soon after she was appointed to the District 3 Supervisor position (replacing David Chiu, who had been elected to the California Assembly).  Our members found her to be smart, and, as a long-time entrepreneur, supportive of growing San Francisco's economy and creating more housing, especially for moderate income residents. 

The PAC unanimously endorsed supporting her and is hosting this fundraiser to show our support for her. All BOMA San Francisco members are most welcomed to attend.
