SACRAMENTO - Assemblyman Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto) announced today that this month’s guest on his television show Capitol Focus is State Senator Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo). In addition to speaking with Speier about her role as a consumer and financial privacy advocate, Simitian discusses mid-year budget cuts, community colleges, and his district’s Woman of the Year: Palo Alto Children’s Theater director, Pat Briggs.

“I’m looking forward to having Senator Speier as a guest, “ said Simitian. “She’s led the drumbeat in protecting consumer privacy and consumer health—which Peninsula residents care very much about. She’s also been a great role model for women throughout the State. I think people will be interested in knowing how she started her career as a public servant,” said Simitian.

Simitian’s 30-minute, monthly televised show follows the legislative calendar and informs Peninsula residents about current events in Sacramento. Each show covers a range of topics of interest to the community and features a significant special guest.

“Capitol Focus provides a wonderful opportunity to let my constituents know what’s going on in the Capitol, and in the District, as well as the good work being done by many of my colleagues.” Simitian promises that the show will be, “timely, candid and always lively.”
