Statement from Mayor London Breed on Governor Gavin Newsom's Proposed Budget
San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed today issued the following statement regarding Governor Gavin Newsom’s proposed state budget for Fiscal Year 2021-22.
“The Governor’s Budget recognizes the stark reality of this incredibly difficult time for the State of California. In addition to all the challenges we have been facing for years, right now in this moment, our workers, families, and young people are in desperate need of immediate relief. By proposing direct investments to working people, small businesses, and our schools, the Governor is doing just that. I also want to recognize the Governor for his continued focus on making significant investments to support those who are living on our streets and suffering from challenges with mental health and substance use.
California will recover from this pandemic, and that recovery starts with investing in the people of this state, whether they are trying to get back to work or they just need to get their lives stabilized in the middle of this pandemic.
I want to thank Governor Newsom for his work to lead this state through one of the most challenging years in our history. I know there is a lot of work to do on this budget going forward, and I look forward to working with San Francisco’s state legislative leaders -- Senator Scott Wiener, Assembly Budget Chair Phil Ting, and Assemblymember David Chiu -- to support the needs and priorities of San Francisco residents.”
