A MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR
Willie L. Brown, Jr.
few weeks ago, we in San Francisco launched the "America:
Open for Business" campaign, to let the world know that
this city, and this nation, will rise from the ashes of
the national tragedy and get this economy moving again.
That effort has since been picked up by mayors across the
country, and "America: Open for Business" has stretched
from coast to coast.
In that same spirit of re-investing in America by re-investing
in our own businesses, city leaders and the San Francisco business
community are pleased to announce SAN FRANCISCO: OPEN FOR
FRANCISCO: OPEN FOR BUSINESS! is a cooperative effort of
the City and County of San Francisco; local business; community,
arts and merchants organizations and associations. This exciting
week is designed to stimulate the local economy, boost consumer
confidence and allow the vast collection of San Francisco businesses,merchants
and community organizations,
small and large, to show the world what they're made of, and what
they've got to offer!
will see the "America: Open for Business" signs on display in stores,
businesses and venues across the city all encouraging visitors and
San Franciscans alike to come in and re-discover the excitement
of SAN FRANCISCO: OPEN FOR BUSINESS!.
