COUNCILMEMBER ASHBY STATEMENT ON AMAZON HEADQUARTERS NATIONAL SEARCH

 

SACRAMENTO—Councilmember Angelique Ashby released the following statement regarding Amazon’s intent to invest $5 billion in a second North American Headquarters.

The recent announcement from Amazon regarding a national search for a second headquarters represents an amazing opportunity for the Sacramento region. Conversations with regional leaders such as Greater Sacramento Area Economic Council, the Metro Chamber of Commerce, and elected officials are well underway to collectively position our area for this opportunity.

The Sacramento region is an ideal location with a commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship, well-educated and talented creative professionals, strong partnerships with academic institutions such as California State University Sacramento and the University of California at Davis, a broad range of housing options including executive and workforce housing, a commitment to public transportation, high quality of life, affordability and rich cultural and artistic amenities based on our extraordinary diversity.

As a region we welcome the opportunity to highlight Sacramento as a national leader in economic development.

 

Angelique Ashby is a mother, business owner, neighborhood leader, the sole female, and senior member of the Sacramento City Council – currently serving in her second term.
