New jobs being created in San Francisco?

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom

According to an article in the California Chronicle on Friday, Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco announced that the enterprise department will be investing $1 billion in new or continuing infrastructure, in the hopes of creating and keeping thousands of jobs in the City. This is going to be in addition to any federal stimulus money that they receive. Some of the projects that they’re planning on working on are improving the MTA, the San Francisco Port, and the San Francisco Airport. I don’t know how realistic this all is, but if it works the way Mayor Newsom hopes, then San Francisco might be able to pull themselves out of the recession. Maybe it’ll work, maybe it won’t, but at least people are trying. What other plans are going on around the country to create new jobs? Let me know on twitter.
