Lunch with Supervisor Joe Simitian
Join us for our monthly luncheon when we welcome Santa Clara County Supervisor and former State Senator Joe Simitian for a conversation about what he learned while "Listening to Trump’s America".
In Joe's words:
Here in the Bay Area we live in a bubble, in a bubble, in a bubble. While 46% of the American electorate voted for President Donald Trump last fall, at home the numbers were dramatically different. In California 32% voted for President Trump, in Santa Clara County it was 21%, and in my hometown of Palo Alto, just 12% voted for President Trump.
Which prompted me to ask, what’s going on in the rest of the country? To get some answers, I traveled to three counties, in three states and had more than 100 conversations in places that had historically voted for Democratic candidates for President (including President Obama), but that “flipped” in 2016, and voted for President Trump. My goal was to listen, learn and understand. And I learned a lot.
Please note: California State Treasurer and gubernatorial candidate John Chiang is being rescheduled to join us at a future luncheon.
