Vice Mayor Bonta to Stage Town Hall

Alameda Vice Mayor Rob Bonta is hosting his third town hall meeting with residents from 6 to 8 p.m. this Thursday, September 29, according to meeting organizers.

At the meeting, which will be held at High Street Station, 1303 High Street (at Encinal Avenue), Bonta hopes to get community input on current issues facing Alameda. Bonta also will make a brief presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Bonta, who was elected to the Alameda City Council in late 2010, plans to run for California State Assembly in 2012 in order to represent residents in the 16th Assembly District, which includes Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro. The current Assembly representative, Sandre Swanson, cannot run for another term because of term limits.
