Go tell it to Pete Stark

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Fremont, is hobnobbing with constituents once again at three town-hall meetings this Saturday, Dec. 1 in Fremont, San Leandro and Alameda.

Ask the 18-term lawmaker whatever you like, but likely topics include the Congressional response to the Cosco Busan oil spill in the San Francisco Bay; funding for the war in Iraq; President Bush’s new push for peace in the Middle East; and the legislative calendar for the rest of the year. The meetings are:

  • 9 – 10 a.m. in the Fremont Senior Center, 40086 Paseo Padre Parkway
  • 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in the Estudillo Room at the San Leandro Library, 300 Estudillo Ave.
  • Noon – 1 p.m. in Council Chambers at Alameda City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave.
  • Josh Richman
