My long day started about 14 hours ago at City Hall, where many clean shaven men and woman — and Bill Marshak — listened to the oracle of the a.m., Brad Kemp, over bagels and coffee.
Kemp is a research director at Beacon Economics, a firm that the city has retained from time to time.
He said business and construction should noticeably pick up in Fremont around the end of this year going into 2012. But he said future growth will probably be spurred by office developments and luring Silicon Valley companies into the city’s many vacant R&D buildings.
As for clean technology, Kemp’s no bull. He said there’s just not much demand for that stuff.
