Monthly Report – June 2021

A note from Mark Cafferty

Despite the State of California “reopening” last week, I think I have accepted the fact that things will not truly be back to normal for a very long time; yet at the same time, we see signs all around us that the way of life we all knew before the pandemic is starting to resume. In the months ahead, Team EDC will begin returning to the office much more regularly.

While numerous things have changed about our work at EDC, the regional goals that we set for 2030 remain unwavering. The need to develop more quality jobs within our small businesses, more skilled workers, and more thriving households across San Diego has only become more prominent. Now more than ever, these Inclusive Growth goals must be our guideposts in re-establishing San Diego’s economic resiliency, growth, and well-being.
