San Diego Workforce Partnership CEO Mark Cafferty just told me that city and county taxpayers will not have to contribute to the first installment of the $1.1 million that the Partnership owes the Department of Labor.

The Partnership’s insurance will pay the entire $235,487 owed this year, Cafferty said. He added that his goal is for the non-profit jobs agency to cover subsequent payments without help from the city and county of San Diego.

“We need to develop a strategy to aggressively pursue funding to minimize any impact on taxpayers,” Cafferty said. “I am very optimistic that we will make progress toward doing that.”
