Back to Work SD: A Blueprint for Our Recovery

The City of San Diego has experienced significant economic impacts since the unprecedented start of the COVID-19 pandemic. On May 15, Todd assembled “Back to Work SD” – a task force of elected officials, business owners, industry experts, and community members who are coming together to create an economic recovery blueprint for San Diego.

The task force is co-chaired by U.S. Congressman Scott Peters and Paola Avila, VP for International Business Affairs at the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce.
