Interview with Richard Bloom, Mayor of Santa Monica

Santa Monica Mayor Richard Bloom met with us to talk about his experience with and vision for California’s tech community.  The City of Santa Monica, while known mostly for its beaches, is also home to a thriving tech community.  Mayor Bloom has embraced the biz-tech community and, as a candidate for the State Assembly*, is outspoken about the role tech will play in our state’s future.

*This is not an endorsement of Bloom’s candidacy.  CALinnovates cannot endorse candidates for elected office per its 501(c)(4) nonprofit status.
