Solano EDC and First 5 May 28 Breakfast

USC Professor to headline Solano EDC Breakfast

The Solano Economic Development Corporation, in partnership with First 5 Solano, will host a business breakfast May 28, 2015. Solano County Superintendent of Schools, Jay Speck, will moderate the program followed by keynote speaker, Dowell Myers. Dr. Myers’ upbeat presentation will focus on the relationship between ‘babies and boomers.’ Dr. Myers explores the moral responsibility each generation has to one another in the future and to economic vitality.

Attendees will gain new knowledge in an unbiased, non-partisan presentation, learning why investing in children makes the most sense for all of us. It’s more than economics – these are the children that will be working for the business community once they are of working age.

Sandy Person, EDC president, said this is the sixth year EDC has teamed with First 5 to bring early childhood to center stage. "Working together, the private sector and local government to support educators and families," Person said. "We can assure a future workforce that will stimulate growth in Solano County."

The First 5 Solano Commission, dedicated to supporting early childhood education and family support programs, will honor the private sector at the event.

First 5 Solano is sponsoring the program, which begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Fairfield. Cost to attend is $25 for members, $35 for non-members. To register, contact Solano EDC at 707-864-1855, or

The EDC breakfast events are underwritten by the EDC Chairman's Circle Members: Electrical Contractors Trust of Solano and Napa Counties, Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District, Manex Consulting, Republic Services, Inc., Solano Garbage Company, Solano Transportation Authority and Syar Industries, Inc.
