Garamendi holds town hall meetings tomorrow

By Josh Richman
Friday, December 4th, 2009 at 3:32 pm in Congressional District 10, John Garamendi.

Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, was among Democrats who characterized today’s jobs report as a good sign:

“Today’s announcement that the unemployment rate dropped in November is welcomed news for the millions of American workers, including tens of thousands of people in my district, struggling to find a job in this difficult economy. The Recovery Act and other jobs-creating measures have laid down the building blocks to repair our economy.

“Our efforts have kept teachers, nurses, and police officers in their jobs and boots are already on the ground to rebuild our roads, bridges, and public transportation systems. There is much more to be done to create jobs, and I will be there every step of the way.”

Agree? Disagree? Go tell him face-to-face tomorrow, Saturday, Dec. 5, as he holds his first town-hall meetings in Contra Costa and Solano counties (after holding one in Livermore last month):

    10 a.m. to noon – Solano County Supervisors’ chambers, 675 Texas St. in Fairfield

I’m sure he’ll be fielding plenty of questions about his vote on health-care reform, too.

    I’ve invited CODEPINK & The local Tea Party Members to Walnut Creek City Hall. Be prepared Joel. It should be interesting.

    I’ve invited Santa and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. We’ll find out who’s been naughty or nice.

    The Nutcracker Ballet was going on a block away. The Hofmann Theatre (no Relation) would have had room to spare for the overflow crowd at City Hall. The tale “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” was written by E.T.A. Hoffmann, my Great-Great-Great Grandfather.
    It’s a fantasy.
