Mayor Chuck Reed vowed to push ahead with San Jose’s program to generate 25,000 green jobs in the Bay Area’s largest city, noting that 1,500 clean-tech jobs were created last year.
“San Jose and Silicon Valley have survived many economic downturns,” Reed said. “Our ability to innovate has pulled us out of economic slumps and made us stronger.”
