We were also pleased to present our 2018 Legislators of the Year award to Senator Steven Glazer (D-Orinda) and Assemblymember Catharine Baker (R-Dublin).  At a packed dinner in Old Sacramento on Tuesday night, we heard how the two legislators with overlapping districts have evolved from rivals running against each other, to a bi-partisan “dynamic duo” that work together on legislation and have done more than a dozen town halls together.

Our industry has worked closely with both legislators on a number of issues ranging from online sales taxes to CEQA and presented both with a plaque recognizing their leadership.  In turn, the Senator and Assemblymember presented Rex S. Hime, President and CEO of CBPA with a mock “concert tour” t-shirt, noting all the cities visited by Glazer and Baker.

The goal of the California Commercial Real Estate Summit is to increase public policy and political awareness of state issues impacting commercial, industrial, and retail real estate, and to foster collaborative efforts among business leaders from all sectors of California and their representatives in the State Legislature.  Recognizing legislators that take the time to listen to concerns of our industry is an important part of the event.

We would like to thank all our members who took the time to attend the CCRES!
