White House releases job numbers by congressional district

The Bay Area will see 73,400 new jobs under the economic stimulus plan that President Barack Obama is set to sign in Denver, according to new numbers released today by the White House.

Rep. Jerry McNerney’s district, which encompasses portions of four counties including Contra Costa and Alameda, would see the most at 8,200.

The other members’ numbers are: Lynn Woolsey, 7,000; George Miller, 7,400; Nancy Pelosi, 6,900; Barbara Lee, 6,900; Ellen Tauscher, 7,600; Jackie Speier, 7,200; Pete Stark, 7,400; Anna Eshoo, 7,000; Mike Honda, 7,300; and Zoe Lofgren, 7,400.

    For BGR’s question on when the jobs will materialize, it took some searching around but I found a reference to the timeline in a report by Obama’s designate to the Council of Economic Advisers, Christina Romer, and Jared Bernstein with Biden’s office.

    The Jan. 9, 2009, report is called “The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan” and it says the program will create three to four million jobs by the end of 2010.

    Does that sound realistic?
