Community notebook: Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian to hold 'sidewalk office hours'

 

Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian announced Wednesday that he will hold "sidewalk office hours" at farmers markets in Palo Alto and Los Altos on Thursday, May 7, and Saturday, May 9. Community members are invited to stop by and ask questions or voice concerns about local issues. No appointment is required.

"I look forward to talking to people one-on-one," Simitian said in a statement. "Sidewalk office hours give both the public and me a chance to interact in an informal, friendly atmosphere. It's tremendously helpful to hear first-hand what folks have on their minds."

Sidewalk office hours will take place on Thursday at the Los Altos farmers market on State Street in downtown Los Altos from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and on Saturday at the downtown Palo Alto's farmers market behind the post office at Hamilton Avenue and Gilman Street from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
