VENTURA : Assemblyman to Hit Streets to Meet Public

Assemblyman Jack O’Connell (D-Carpinteria) is hitting the streets to meet his constituents in Ventura Wednesday in another of his ongoing series of curbside sessions.

O’Connell will prop up a card table from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the corner of California and Main streets in downtown Ventura to meet with voters and answer questions about state government.

“This way people can just stop by” without an appointment, said Lorraine Sanchez, O’Connell’s field representative. “Sometimes people stop by just to say hello or because they have an opinion on some issue or they are having a problem with a state agency,” she said.

O’Connell’s card table office has made its way through each of the cities in the 35th District, which stretches from west of Fillmore to north of Santa Barbara, Sanchez said.


The card table sessions have been going on for years and are not part of O’Connell’s campaign to win the state Senate seat to be vacated by Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara), Sanchez said.
