California Sen. Joel Anderson (R-Alpine) will listen to constituents and invite ideas on how to improve state government at a “Community Coffee” starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30, at the Chapel at Grossmont, 5651 Water St., La Mesa. The free event, open to the public, will be hosted by La Mesa City Council members Guy McWhirter and Bill Baber.
“Make state government work for you is priority number one,” said Anderson. “This will be an opportunity for me to hear directly from you about your needs, opinions and legislative ideas to make state government more effective and efficient, and discuss the issues that are most important to you and your family. Additionally, if you need help resolving an issue with a state agency, district staff will be on hand to assist you.”
To RSVP for planning purposes, contact Anderson’s El Cajon district office at (619) 596-3136, or visit www.senate.ca.gov/anderson. Anderson’s 38th Senate district includes La Mesa, Santee, El Cajon, Poway and most of East San Diego County. He was first elected to the state Assembly in 2006 and to the state Senate in 2010.
