The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce will lead a delegation of 102 business, community and civic leaders to Sacramento Tuesday to lobby for legislation benefiting local business and job creation.

The two-day “Leadership Delegation to Sacramento” will be the largest such delegation the chamber has sent to the Capitol.

Jerry Sanders, President and CEO of the chamber, said that the delegation hopes to meet with policymakers from all over the state for the benefit of San Diego’s business community.

“Our members are active and engaged on the critical issues facing our region and bringing those perspectives to Sacramento is an important part of the chamber’s work to make the San Diego region the best place to live and work,” Sanders said. “When we are on the ground at the Capitol with a large, diverse delegation we are able to show state leaders who these policies affect and how, it makes a real impact.”

Members of the delegation include Sanders, Caroline Winn, chief operating office of San Diego Gas & Electric, San Diego City Councilmembers Jennifer Campbell, Chris Cate, Mark Kersey, Vivian Moreno and Chris Ward and various representatives from San Diego companies and organizations.

Major policy topics of the delegation include health care, infrastructure and mobility, housing supply and affordability, improving international trade, water usage and the future of workforce development.
