Hometowns and Headquarters: Growing an Industry LocallyCommonwealth Club - Lafayette Library and Learning CenterThe California Center of the Milken Institute recently published a report that provides a platform to help public officials and business leaders chart a brighter future for Contra Costa County. The county is the third largest in the Bay Area and boasts a mature industrial base that generates more than $50 billion in annual sales.
