SCAG and the Southern California Leadership Council held the fifth annual Economic Summit on Thursday, December 4, at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Building upon the discussions at SCAG’s 50 Years into the War on Poverty event held this past August, the Economic Summit will highlight opportunity areas for collaboration and pinpoint key economic strategies that will provide good-paying jobs and revitalize the economy. State and local elected officials, public and private sector CEOs, business and labor leaders, stakeholder agency representatives and city managers are invited to attend and share ways in which we can build a stronger, more prosperous and sustainable Southern California.
Larry Kosmont, President and CEO, presented at this event on the subject of funding resources to create essential infrastructure investment and service delivery. Without stable revenue streams, many jurisdictions are attempting to cobble together various sources to achieve their economic development objectives. The panel Larry spoke on was composed of public, private and non-profit representatives that highlighted opportunities to finance infrastructure projects and community revitalization efforts and share real-world success stories. Kosmont Companies is proud to have been a part of this event and looks forward to working more with SCAG and the Southern California Leadership Council.
