Overheard at the Progress Seminar:
“I especially appreciate the chance to forge relationships, entertain new perspectives, and renew and deepen my ties with the remarkable leaders that come to the Progress Seminar every year. This is the magic of San Mateo County.”
“This is why I come to the Progress Seminar – it gives us a safe space to discuss controversial issues.”
“People can really help by showing up to lend their support at the local and regional levels and also by supporting legislation that is designed to move the housing agenda forward.”
“[San Mateo County] is the connector between two major cities. We have common interests. If you listen, build relationships, and understand other counties, it makes it possible to garner support for our projects. I think we do have clout because we know how to collaborate.”
“It takes the entire region to work together.”
“There is no place like San Mateo County. The level of collaboration and working partnerships is unusual and it makes us unique. Relationships matter. But you’ve got to reach out and create them.”
