    The long beach municipal band

    Individual events also help to combine the many races and nationalities in the 38th District. Kidsday recognizes the outstanding achievements of 100 to 200 Downey youth in academic, athletic and community-based activities. Other 38th District events include the annual Downey Youth Fishing Day and the Anaheim International Festival street fair. The Long Beach Municipal Band is also important to the 38th District and so is Long Beach's sisiter city of Sochi, Russia.

    What does the underlined sentence mean?

    Does it mean that "Sochi, Russia is also important to the 38th District"?

    Does the author use "Long Beach" to refer to San Francisco? I know that Long Beach is a tourist attraction. How can it have a sister city?


    thanks

    Yes, it is saying that Sochi is important to the 38th District.

    Long Beach is a city in California.
