Palo Alto’s Role in Public Service for Two Elected Leaders

Palo Alto’s Role in Public Service for Two Elected Leaders

Join Palo Alto Councilmember and former Mayor Karen Holman in conversation with Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (D-CA, 19th District) and Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian as she explores how their lives in public service have been guided by early influences in their hometown of Palo Alto.

Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren attended Palo Alto public schools from kindergarten through graduation from Gunn High School and Supervisor Joe Simitian moved to Palo Alto as a teenager and graduated from Palo Alto High School. As highly-respected elected officials, both have championed a range of issues that affect our lives both in local matters and through state and national policy.

Representative Lofgren has been recognized by her constituents with numerous awards for her work on immigration, healthcare, technology, and women’s issues. Supervisor Simitian has received awards from a wide range of organizations including the California School Boards Association and National Organization for Women (NOW) and has garnered a 100 percent environmental rating from the Sierra Club.

Holman will moderate the conversation taking place at Lucie Stern Community Center on Sunday, Dec. 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. Click here for more information.
