“During these difficult times, it’s more important than ever for elected officials to listen to the people they represent,” said Simitian. “I want to make sure the folks I represent have an easy way to share their thoughts.”

Simitian holds his sidewalk office hours at local farmers’ markets. All questions are welcome, and no appointment is required.
