Rep. Eshoo to hold town hall meeting in Mountain View

Congresswoman expected to discuss recent visit to Texas-Mexico border

U.S. Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, is set to hold a community town hall meeting on Monday, July 22, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Mountain View Community Center.

Eshoo represents the 18th congressional district, which includes Mountain View, Los Altos and Palo Alto.

After offering opening remarks, Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, will take questions from constituents for the majority of the town hall. According to her office, Eshoo will likely speak about her July 13 visit to the Texas-Mexico border, where she toured detention centers in McAllen and Brownsville, Texas and met with immigrant families, border officials and humanitarian volunteers.

Admission is free and on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees are advised to RSVP through the congresswoman's website due to limited space. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at the Community Center, located at 201 S. Rengstorff Ave.
