San Joaquin Partnership "Greater Silicon Valley" Program honored at 2014 Partnership Summit

The San Joaquin Partnership's job development program targeting the Silicon Valley was be honored September 19th during the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley's (CPSJV) 2014 Summit "Champions for Regional Change" in Clovis.

For the past three years, the CPSJV has highlighted projects in its Annual Report that take place in the San Joaquin Valley and which are progressive but not Partnership driven. Two selections are made for the categories of infrastructure development, sustainable planning, and job creation. The Partnership will present its "Champions for Regional Change" "Kudos" awards in the areas of infrastructure development, planning and job creation. The winners are: -- Infrastructure development: the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors for the Stanislaus County Groundwater Management Program; and the San Joaquin Valley Electric Vehicle Partnership by Nissan North America Inc. and NRG eVgo. -- Sustainable planning: the city of Hughson for its Farmland Preservation Program; and a Partner Recognition award to Self-Help Enterprises, based in Visalia, for almost 50 years of housing construction. -- Job creation: the Careers in Manufacturing program developed by the Manufacturers Council of the Central Valley, the Stanislaus Business Alliance and Stanislaus Partners in Manufacturing; and San Joaquin County and the San Joaquin Partnership for GreaterSiliconValley.com.

San Joaquin Partnership President & CEO Mike Ammann along with County Supervisor Steve Bestolarides accepted the award. The California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley, initiated in June 2005 by an executive order from Governor Schwarzenegger, is an unprecedented effort to bring together public and private leaders and resources to address economic, environmental and social issues in the eight-county San Joaquin Valley (from San Joaquin County in the north to Kern County in the south).
