Meet your Congressman!

When I lived in Santa Cruz, our local Congressional rep (Sam Farr) would meet with the public every few months at a local eatery, just to talk politics and connect with his constituents. While anyone can request a meeting with their congressman, this format was informal, fun, and made you feel like they cared about what you have to say.

After moving home to Orange County, I wasn’t sure I’d find that kind of interaction with my representatives – it just seemed like a more Democrat thing to do, ya know? But John Campbell’s proved me wrong, and is having a “Coffee With The Congressman” event tomorrow, February 19th at the Peet’s Coffee at 12932 Newport in Tustin at 9am.

Roughly, the 48th is the north part of south county and the south part of central county – there’s a map here. Come ask your congressman about the war, taxes, Britney’s freakout, or whatever’s on your mind. Seeya there!.

    I always like it win a congressman/woman decides to meet with his/her constituents over coffee.

    Funny, I wasn’t even aware we had a congressman. Who knew?
