Next week, Rocklin residents will have a unique opportunity to get an inside look at what’s going on in their city at the 2013 State of the City Ad-dress & Breakfast.

The annual event, sponsored by the Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce, starts bright and early Friday at Sierra College, a new location intended to provide room for the hundreds of attendees expected.

City Manager Rick Horst will recap the city’s accomplishments from the past year and discuss goals for the future. He’ll also devote plenty of time to discussing Rocklin’s economic development initiatives as the city comes back swinging from the recession. Mayor Diana Ruslin and Roger Niello, CEO of the Sac Metro Chamber will also speak at the event.

This is a great opportunity to get caught up on what’s happening in our city – I know I’ll be there, and I look forward to learning about our city’s plans to move forward and thrive.
