Tonight I joined a group of the young movers and shakers of Long Beach.
Suja Lowenthal, Robert Garcia and Jeff Klien spoke about their involvement in Long Beach, as well as their goals and how we can get involved.
Suja (Long Beach Councilwoman, 2nd District.) talked about Improving downtown.
Robert (Co-Founder LBpost.com talked about keeping LBpost.com rolling strong, as well as moving to higher politics.
Jeff (Principle and managing partner, Queen Mary) spoke about his ideas and thoughts with the Queen Mary development, as well as hint towards working with Disney and possibly as talked about an NFL stadium. He also bashed the 710 freeway and rightfully so.
Anyways, it was mainly an encouragement to network and get to know the people that are doing good things in Long Beach.(plus get some great appitizers and a view of the airstrip at Ristorante da Vinci. I wish Justin Rudd and Ralph Millero could have been there!
