McNerney to meet with vets, families

mcnerneyportrait.jpgRep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, will hold public meetings Saturday with veterans and military families.

“I want to hear directly from veterans and military families about the kinds of issues they face in getting the help, treatment and benefits they deserve,” he said in a news release. “As we in Congress consider legislation affecting veterans and their loved ones, it’s important to me to actually talk to the people that would be affected.”

The first meeting will be from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Pleasanton Library, 400 Old Bernal Ave.; the second will be from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Cesar Chavez Central Library, 605 N. El Dorado St. in Stockton.

Oh, and check out his Web site; the redesign was rolled out this week.
