The Revival Begins Here
By Teresa DuqueCandidate for Board of Supervisors; San Francisco County; District 10
This information is provided by the candidate
Teresa Duque's platform on how to bring about an economic revival and create jobs in District #10.The economic revival of the district of the district and of San Francisco must begin here. Teresa Duque has the experience and the integrity to make sure jobs are created in the district. As Business Development Officer for United Commercial Bank (UCB), Teresa Duque was able to attract business leaders from across the Pacific Rim to set up shop in the Bay Area, creating jobs for locals rather than outsourcing them.
In regards to development for the Bayview/ Hunters' Point area:
I have been a long-time supporter of the Bayview/ Hunters' Point development as long as it has it continues to insure that local merchants, community leaders, union leaders, and local residents continue to be part of the constructive dialogue. I personally brought over 100 people from the Asian-American community to testify on behalf of the development of the area to City Hall. We also need to make sure that affordable housing and public transportation needs are met, much in the same way as Supervisor Sophie Maxwell has advocated for many years. With regards to labor contracts:
The City does best when it looks out for the best interests of its residents rather than special interests. The TIGER Projects to revitalize the infrastructure passed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Barack Obama are helping to provide real jobs for people. We need to make sure that the city does more to protect the projects for working people. The local unions and workers of the district are best served by their local government when leaders advocate for jobs, rather than having outside groups dictate terms of development. We need a government that is both smart and sensible.
The classic definition of insanity is to do things repeatedly, and to expect different results. We need to start developing new policies to address the policies that face the community today:
