SACRAMENTO - Assemblyman Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto) announced today that his office is producing a new monthly television show, Capitol Focus.  The 30-minute monthly show will follow the legislative calendar and inform Peninsula residents about current events in Sacramento.  Each show will cover a range of topics of interest to the community and feature a significant special guest.  California Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin is the special guest for the September show, Simitian’s first.

“Communicating with the folks I represent is a top priority for me,” said Simitian.  “And with constituents in 15 different cities spanning two different counties, it’s a challenge.”  “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.”

Capitol Focus will initially air on the following cable stations located in the 21st Assembly District viewing area:
