CBPA INDUSTRY AWARDS DINNER
Last night in Newport Beach, California Business Properties Association held our bi-annual Industry Awards Dinner to recognize the unwavering leadership of individuals and companies dedicated to the commercial industrial retail real estate industry.
This year we presented our Champion of the Industry Awards to David Sisson, Senior Vice President, Global Properties of Best Buy for their accomplishments in the retail development field; Jim Camp, Senior Vice President & Regional Development Officer of the Rockefeller Group, for his accomplishments in the industrial development field and Greg McWilliams, Chief Policy Officer of FivePoint Communities, for his accomplishments in the service development field. As an active participant at so many levels – city, county, regional and state Greg McWilliams’ involvement has sought to encourage economic growth and job creation for Californians. As CBPA’s longest serving Chairman of the Board, his efforts and commitment on behalf of this vital industry have ensured that California remains a great place to live and conduct business.
In addition to the Champions of the Industry award recipients, CBPA also recognized two companies for their dedication and commitment to community service and the commercial real estate industry.
Melissa Wattana of The Blackstone Group was awarded the John Caldecott Memorial Award for their community charitable actions and Jason Jamison of GM Properties was awarded the Ernest W. Hahn Memorial Award for Legislative Affairs for their service to the commercial real estate industry.
We would like to thank all our generous sponsors one last time, and everyone who helped us recognize and celebrate our industry and the hard work we do every day that should not go unnoticed. Thank you, and we are looking forward to more events like this to get our industry together!
ONE WEEK TO GO!
In just over one week Californian’s will go to the polls to vote for new representation and weigh in on important policy questions up and down the ballot. Vote by Mail packets are already in the mail.
Our association makes recommendations on those issues that have a statewide direct and/or disproportionate impact on the commercial, industrial, and retail real estate industry.
For recommendations on local candidates and issues please connect with your local staff.
SUPPORT PROP 3 – WATER BOND
Proposition 3 authorizes $8.9 billion in state general obligation bonds for various infrastructure projects related to water projects.
Please vote YES on Proposition 3.
SUPPORT PROP 5 – PROPERTY TAX TRANSFERS
Proposition 5 would allow homebuyers who are age 55 or older or severely disabled to transfer their tax assessments from their prior home to their new home.
Please vote YES on Proposition 5.
OPPOSE PROP 10 – RENT CONTROL
Proposition 10 repeals Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act and would allow rent control across the state. We believe the measure has too many flaws and must be defeated. Prop. 10 allows regulation of single-family homes, places bureaucrats in charge of housing, could cost the taxpayers millions in new costs to local government, and drives up the cost of new housing.
Please vote NO on Proposition 10.
RENT CONTROL MEASURE MUST BE DEFEATED! NO ON PROP 10 AD
Proposition 10 would be such a disaster for our industry we want to provide you more information and hopefully help you communicate with peers, colleagues, tenants, next door neighbors, your barista, and your barber, about why they should VOTE NO on PROP 10.
Prop 10 has too many flaws and must be defeated.
Here is a new ad on this bad measure that we hope you will share widely with your networks:
- Allows Regulation of Single-Family Homes
- Places Bureaucrats in Charge of Housing with the Power to Add Additional Fees
- Puts Taxpayers at Risk for Millions in Legal Costs
- Adds Tens of Millions in New Costs to Local Governments
- Drives Up the Cost of Existing Housing
Vote NO on Prop. 10. Click here for more information.
