Mayor Clarkson set to deliver his penultimate State of the City address

Opportunities available to sponsor annual event, registration closes Feb. 13

San Ramon Mayor Bill Clarkson is preparing to meet with residents at the San Ramon Marriott on Feb. 20, to give his annual State of the City address where he will discuss the city’s accomplishments over the past year and update attendees on his goals for 2019.

Hosted by the San Ramon Chamber of Commerce, Clarkson's speech will address the status of City Center Bishop Ranch, the creation of a 200-acre walking district around the City Center area, and discuss efforts to preserve open space while still promoting economic growth.

This State of the City address will be the penultimate for Clarkson, who will make his last address as the city’s mayor in 2020.

In November, Clarkson was re-elected by San Ramon voters to serve a fourth and final term as the city’s top elected official. Clarkson secured re-election by a wide margin, defeating his challenger by earning 75.03% of total votes, according to the Contra Costa County Elections Department.

The Chamber of Commerce is seeking individuals or businesses to become sponsors for the event, in exchange for certain event perks such as table space, podium time, event recognition or a custom banner displayed with the sponsor's logo or name.

The event will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at the San Ramon Marriott, 2600 Bishop Drive. It will begin with a networking period, lunch and welcoming remarks, followed by the mayor's State of the City address, and conclude with a question and answer session.

Individual tickets can be purchased online and are $35 for San Ramon Chamber of Commerce members and $45 for non-members. Registration for the State of the City closes at 5 p.m. Feb. 13.
