U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, whose congressional district once served South Pasadena, will host a telephone town hall on Thursday, March 19, at 7 p.m., regarding the impact on the coronavirus in the country.
He has been with California’s 28th Congressional District since 2013 and is currently serving his 10th term as a congressman, having been in office since 2001.
“I know many of my constituents are deeply concerned about the Coronavirus and are looking for accurate, reliable information on the health and economic impacts of this pandemic, how they can protect themselves and their families, and what the government is doing to help,” he said, talking about why he decided to host the town hall meeting via the phone.
To be a part of it, dial 855-962-1154.
“While we can’t be together in person right now, I want to help get your questions answered – so I’m hosting a telephone town hall with Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, MD, professor at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health with joint appointments in the departments of Epidemiology and Community Health Sciences, and Victor Parker, District Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration Los Angeles District Office,” explained Schiff.
The congressman said he looks forward to talking “about this critical moment for our nation, and getting your questions answered by a public health expert.”
Can’t join in? “We’ll be holding another telephone town hall later this month, stay tuned!” he noted on his website.
For the latest information and updates on the Coronavirus, Schiff urges residents to consult the CDC and the LA County Department of Public Health.
“Stay safe and healthy,” said Schiff. “We are going to get through this. America has been through severe challenges in the past, and we’ve come out stronger because of the actions of citizens who worked together for the greater good and the decisions we made to ensure that the most vulnerable do not get left behind. The same will be true with our response to the Coronavirus.”
