McNerney Continues To Be Accessible

Manteca Bulletin: Congressman, coffee & chat

"Jerry McNerney learned something he didn’t expect Saturday morning — at lest one constituent is fed up with roadside litter.

“I’ve noticed that myself (crossing the Altamont),” the first-term congressman said.McNerney was in Manteca Saturday morning listening to constituents at the Main Street Cafe as part of his Congressman at Your Corner series of informal meetings.

While roadside litter may not be a federal issue or rate up there in importance with the Iraq War or alternative fuels, McNerney said that is exactly what he wanted to hear.

“I’m excited about having the chance for people to share their concerns,” McNerney said.

Over two dozen people chatted with the congressman during the hour-long gathering. Issues they brought up ranged from worker’s compensation, health care, and veterans issues to immigration — all staples on a typical congressman’s plate." (source)
