SACRAMENTO – State Senator Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto) announced today that he will hold “sidewalk office hours” in Willow Glen on August 29th and Campbell on August 30th. Simitian invites community members to visit and voice their questions and concerns about state issues. 

“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.

Saturday, August 29th
10:30 AM - Noon
