Laner Electrical Supply regrettably announces that Golden Gate Business Association President JP Leddy has passed, unexpectedly but peacefully and of natural causes.
JP’s amazing capacity for love and friendship earned him countless friends and he will be missed by so many. He was a dedicated father and grandfather, passionate volunteer to many causes that were dear to him, a community champion who gave selflessly beyond measure and a friend to so many who will now have to heal.
JP’s leadership and commitment to the GGBA has propelled the organization to its strongest point in decades and utilizing the many lessons he shared with us we will honor him by growing stronger and more dedicated to the mission that he helped us to define.

Meeting With U.S. Congressman Mark DeSaulnier

In March, the Council of Industries hosted a luncheon at the Richmond Country Club with honored guest Congressman Mark DeSaulnier.  The Congressman spoke to a packed hall in depth about government contracts and services, budgets, macroeconomic trends, and economic issues affecting businesses here in Contra Costa County and the San Francisco Bay Area.  The conversation was lively and productive; specifically the group discussed mechanisms for generating opportunity for small and emerging businesses in a competitive environment.

Laner Electric would like to thank the Contra Costa Council of Industries for providing business resources and access to key decision-makers in the community.
