BOMA San Francisco Members:

BOMA's Government Affairs Committee members have been meeting with public officials recently to represent your interests.San Francisco Board of Supervisors member, David Campos, spoke to BOMA representatives recently at San Francisco's City Hall.

Supervisor Campos' Background

This meeting was held to update Supervisor Campos on the fast-paced commercial real estate market in San Francisco. Proposition M, the Office Development Annual Limitation Program, was mentioned and Campos was receptive to our member's concerns. Even so, he would need to review a legislative proposal and hold further discussions with BOMA members to understand the impact of any change to the law.

Supervisor Campos' Legacy Business Registry program was mentioned and Campos has kindly agreed to attend the next Government Affairs Committee meeting on July 8th to provide context regarding his proposal to BOMA members.

Meeting attendees informed Campos of the economic benefits for all of San Francisco, i.e., taxes and jobs generated, from our industry and from the tenants that lease space from BOMA building members.

Lastly, our members' effort to address an imminent labor shortage via the BOMA Foundation and our partnership with San Francisco State University was detailed.  The Foundation's effort to introduce underprivileged youth to the commercial real estate industry through our partnership with Juma Ventures was also discussed.

BOMA San Francisco members appreciate Supervisor Campos' time and are honored to be a resource for her constituents.
