I will be unable to attend the OPUD committee meetings, a TRLIA broad meeting (agenda), and a SACOG Transporation Committee meeting (agenda), as I’m headed to Joint Base San Antonio with BMLC to learn more about the mission of the 16th Air Force and how we can best support Beale AFB and our local airmen.   Before leaving for San Antonio, I have several things on my calendar, including a meeting with Blue Zones to talk about their Corner Market Program, a SACOG Transportation Committee agenda review, and a Yes to Startups event where Yuba County entrepreneurs will pitch their business in our local version of Shark Tank.
