Mayor Bob Sampayan celebrated the City’s rapid and inclusive growth, citing that the City has added 1,000 jobs since October 2017, and has an unemployment rate of 3.9%, below the state average of 4.2%. He continued to highlight the City’s partnerships with businesses, healthcare organization, nonprofits, educational institutions, and other agencies. In his address, Mayor Sampayan also discussed Vallejo as a main transit hub, with annual ferry ridership reaching 1.2 million, leading to the addition of a larger, 445-passenger ferry to be added into service. 

Mayor Sampayan concluded, “We, Vallejo, are the gem of the North Bay! We are Vallejo Proud! We are Vallejo Strong!”

Following Mayor Sampayan’s address, City Manager Greg Nyhoff joined him to respond to questions from the audience members.
