David Chiu, President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and founder of Grassroots Enterprise, a consultancy focused on Internet communications, has joined the advisory board for the San Francisco Technology Democrats. Chiu made his commitment to the organization at the California Democratic Party Convention in Sacramento on Friday. In this advisory role, he joins Brigette Hunley, Chair of the California Democratic Party Computer & Internet Caucus, and Sally Lieber, former three-term Silicon Valley Assemblywoman.
"San Francisco should be the headquarters for the innovation economy of the 21st century and not just another bedroom community for Silicon Valley," said Chiu. "But as a founder of an online technology company, I know firsthand that building a tech business here in San Francisco can be difficult. I'm excited to be a part of SF Tech Dems, an organization that advocates for a pro-technology agenda that will make it easier for entrepreneurs to create jobs in our great city of San Francisco."
