June 5-6: Simitian to host 'sidewalk office hours'

State senator will meet with constituents in Palo Alto, Menlo Park on June 5 and 6

State Senator Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto) has announced he will hold "sidewalk office hours" in Palo Alto and Menlo Park on June 5 and 6. Community members will be able to talk with Simitian without setting an appointment.

On Saturday, June 5, from 10 a.m. to noon, Simitian will be at the Palo Alto Farmers' Market, which is behind the Downtown Post Office, at Hamilton Avenue and Gilman Street.

On Sunday, June 6, 10 to 11:30 a.m., he will be at the Menlo Park Farmers' Market, which is on Chestnut Street between Santa Cruz Avenue and Menlo Avenue.

"I enjoy meeting people face-to-face," Simitian said in a press statement. "These events 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."

He praised farmers market as prime meeting spots.

"The setting is relaxed, it's easy to find, and a lot of folks stop by to talk on the spur of the moment," Simitian said.

Simitian will also host sidewalk office hours later in June in San Carlos, Cupertino, San Jose's Willow Glen neighborhood and Campbell.
