Two County Supervisors hosting town halls in coming week

Novel coronavirus and stay-at-home orders are keeping residents at home, making elected officials find new ways of connecting with constituents.

Two Santa Clara County Supervisors are set to continue their community engagement efforts in the coming week. And, neither event requires residents to leave their homes.

On Sunday, April 26, Supervisor Joe Simitian is holding a telephone town hall to discuss the status of COVID-19 response. Dr. Jeff Smith, the county’s chief executive, Paul Lorenz from Valley Medical Center, and Greta Hansen, Chief Assistant County Counsel, will join the call.

Simitian last hosted a telephone town hall in early April. To register for Sunday’s call, which starts at 11 a.m., click here.

Another upcoming engagement opportunity comes Wednesday, April 29. Supervisor Dave Cortese is hosting another in his series of radio town hall events. It runs from 6 to 7 p.m. on KCXU 92.7 FM.

To ask questions of Supervisor Cortese, you can call in during his show at 408-634-8086 or text them to 408-480-7833.

KCXU is available in much of the South Bay, including the following neighborhoods: Alviso, North San Jose, Alum Rock, Little Portugal, Japantown, Downtown, Little Italy, The Alameda, Rose Garden, Santana Row, Willow Glen, Little Saigon, Evergreen, and Naglee.

For families not in that coverage area, Cortese is livestreaming the events, available here. A recorded Spanish-language translation is available after the event.

Cortese hosted a town hall with Dr. Smith on April 11 on KSJX 1500 AM.
