Webber travels to California to attend climate summit

September 14, 2018

Mayor Alan Webber traveled to San Francisco on Thursday to take part in the Global Climate Action Summit.

Co-chaired by California Gov. Jerry Brown, the summit is an international gathering of local leaders, businesses and others to follow through on commitments in line with the 2015 Paris climate accord.

A city spokesman said city taxpayers are covering the cost of Webber’s travel but not his lodging. Webber has “a place” in San Francisco where he will stay. The round-trip ticket cost $282, spokesman Matt Ross said. The mayor will return Friday evening.

“Santa Fe has long been a leader in water conservation and renewable energy. I look forward to working with other mayors and world leaders to compare our plans and come back to Santa Fe ready to continue that tradition of leadership,” Webber said in a statement.
