Rep. McNerney Announces Congress at Your Corner Program
|AMBITIOUS CONSTITUENT OUTREACH EFFORT BEGINS MONDAY|
February 16, 2007
Washington, DC - Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-11) announced that he is creating a Congress at Your Corner program as part of an ambitious effort to reach out to residents of California's 11th District. Congress at Your Corner is designed to allow constituents to meet and discuss issues with Rep. McNerney in the places where they already shop and recreate.
"I am committed to meeting with residents throughout the district so that I can effectively serve them and address their needs," Rep. McNerney said. "And instead of asking community members to come to one of my offices, I am going to go to them to make it as easy as possible for them to see their Member of Congress."
Throughout the year, Rep. McNerney will schedule public appearances as a part of the Congress at Your Corner program, at community hot spots like grocery stores and shopping centers. Rep. McNerney and his staff will be on hand to discuss issues on residents' minds, listen to their opinions, and aid them in finding solutions to any difficulties they may encounter in dealing with federal agencies.
