Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) will host six town hall meetings in communities that he represents throughout August, including in Richmond.

The Richmond town hall will occur Monday, Aug. 1, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. (check-in begins at 6 p.m.) at Richmond City Council Chambers, 440 Civic Center Plaza.

Since being elected in January 2015, DeSaulnier has hosted 23 town hall meetings and mobile district office hours throughout Contra Costa County.

“Hearing directly from the residents of Contra Costa County helps make me a better representative,” he said in a statement. “It is my hope that these town hall meetings will serve as a place for constituents to share their thoughts and opinions on issues important to our community. I invite you to join me at a town hall meeting to listen to a Congressional update on key policy issues, learn about our legislative work in Congress, and discuss the broad range of services we can provide.”
