SPUR 2011 Good Government Awards

From SPUR:

The Municipal Fiscal Advisory Committee (MFAC) is pleased to host the 31st annual Good Government Awards on March 21, 2011. This event has evolved over the last three decades, but its purpose remains the same: to recognize and acknowledge exemplary job performance and leadership by San Francisco City employees.

Event chair Michael Walker, President of U.S. Bank of Northern California, City department heads and the Mayor of San Francisco will present a select number of outstanding City employees with the distinguished Public Managerial Excellence Award. The event will include a hosted reception, and present sponsors with the opportunity to meet with City department heads, members of the Board of Supervisors, other elected officials and business and community leaders in an informal atmosphere. In addition, all former San Francisco mayors are being invited to join the current mayor that evening.
