California State Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins will be holding community office hours in two North County cities in September. Community office hours are an opportunity for the public to meet with the assemblywoman’s staff and get information on state services or assistance with any state-related agency, including:
• Department of Motor Vehicles
• State Franchise Tax Board
• Veterans Affairs
• Medi-Cal and Covered California (Affordable Care Act).
Staffers can also give information to assist in areas such as consumer complaints, property tax issues, and unemployment and disability insurance.
Community office hours are also an opportunity to suggest changes to a law, ask for copies, summaries, and information on bills, or simply to express an opinion.
The staffers also handle questions on items such as the State Budget, state agency phone numbers, reports issued by the Legislature and state agencies, and state Capitol tour requests.
Community office hours will be from 10-11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, at the Del Mar County Library, 1309 Camino Del Mar, Del Mar, and from 11 a.m. noon Saturday, Sept. 13, at the Solana Beach County Library, Earl Warren Middle School, 157 Stevens Ave., Solana Beach.
