Each year in San Diego, the chairman of the Board of Supervisors offers a speech summing up the priorities and goals of this region's largest government agency for the new year.
Tonight's State-of-the-County speech by Supervisor Ron Roberts is expected to include news of an "ambitious job-creating infrastructure construction plan," according to a County news release.
Roberts also intends to discuss new health-related programs, introduce a wireless emergency services initiative, update plans for the waterfront park and present the inaugural Chairman’s Award, a specially sculpted reduced-scale replica of the iconic Guardian of the Water.
He will deliver his speech at 6 p.m. at the Hall of Champions in Balboa Park. Government officials, business representatives and civic leaders are expected to attend.
