"At What Cost? The Unintended Consequences of Declining Revenues" (Registration opens at 8:30 a.m.) Since the recession began a few years ago, government at all levels has had to watch their revenues decline while expenses continued. One of the consequences has been that the federal and state governments have taken action to balance their budgets by cutting revenues to local governments. The cities and county are literally where the rubber meets the road and there is no other entity that they can go to for additional revenue. Their budgets have to be in balance. Expert speakers, panelists & moderators include: * Girish Lakshman, Vice President, Amazon * Fred Silva, Senior Policy Advisor, California Forward * Bobbi Peckham, Partner, Peckham & McKenney * Jane H. Adams, Executive Director, California Park & Recreation Society * Stephen Finnegan, Manager Government Affairs, Automobile Club of Southern California * Ed Medrano, Gardena Police Chief and President of the LA County Police Chiefs’ Association * Steve Burrell, Former Hermosa Beach City Manager * David Brodsly, Managing Director, KNN Public Finance * Larry Kosmont, President and CEO, Kosmont Companies * Richard Bernard, Senior Vice President, Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates * And state and federal legislators who have been invited between 8:45 and 9:45 am RSVP’s required before February 19, 2013 Register online: www.southbaycities.org
