CSUEB MPA GRAD IS NEW CEO OF MARTINEZ CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Image

Cal State East Bay alumnus John Stevens,
MPA, ('07), is the new chief executive officer
of the Martinez Chamber of Commerce.
In an article with Contra Costa Times Reporter Lisa P. White, Stevens said he believes the
keys to a thriving downtown include strategic marketing, more housing and business
diversity.
"I think that we have not done a good job of marketing Amtrak as a means of transportation for tourism to our city and the events that we
do here," said Stevens. "If we market those up and down the (Amtrak) corridor, I think we can get more businesses in the city without generating more traffic and therefore generate more sales tax that could pay for a parking garage."
