Connecting state and local government leaders
The mayor discusses how a global and local revolution in transportation is impacting a multi-modal hub for the nation.
Route Fifty spoke with Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia at SXSW about how his age is an asset, balancing global and local transportation changes, and how Long Beach will continue to move forward on support for veterans after reaching “functional zero” in veterans homelessness.
Garcia also wants to ensure that with the advances in automation that are impacting ports, transportation and myriad other areas, his community receives the training needed to transition new “good paying jobs for the community.”
