Community Notebook: Simitian to host 'sidewalk office hours'


Community members can chat with Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian about local issues during Simitian's "sidewalk office hours" in Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale and Saratoga beginning April 2.

"I look forward to talking to people one-on-one," Simitian said in an announcement for the event. "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."

No appointment is needed. Simitian will host sidewalk office hours at the following locations:

Sunnyvale Farmers' Market

Murphy Avenue in Sunnyvale

Saturday, April 2, 9-10:30 a.m.

Saratoga Farmers' Market

West Valley College

Saturday, April 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Mountain View Farmers' Market

Mountain View Caltrain Station

Sunday, April 3, 10-11:30 a.m.

Saratoga Farmers' Market

West Valley College

Saturday, April 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

We can't do it without you.
