As the pandemic continues to impact our region, many are hopeful for the incoming Biden administration’s economic recovery plan. If passed, states and local governments will receive hundreds of billions of dollars in federal aid. In the interim, local governments must attempt to balance their budgets while providing critical financial assistance to residents and businesses.

Join SPUR for a discussion with our region’s budget directors from San Francisco, San José and Oakland to hear more about the Bay Area’s economic recovery efforts and the future of our cities’ budgets.


Registration closes on Monday, February 15th at 5 p.m. A link to the program will be sent to registered attendees on the evening of February 15th. Please email advance questions for the speakers to Livesey Pack at


+ Ben Rosenfield, City Controller, City and County of San Francisco
+ Jim Shannon, Budget Director, City of San José
+ Bradley Johnson, Assistant Budget Administrator, City of Oakland

This conversation will be moderated by Ronak Davé Okoye, SPUR's Oakland Director.
