Rep. Pete Aguilar Meets with San Bernardino Residents

This weekend, Rep. Pete Aguilar (CA-31) met with constituents at Mitla Café in San Bernardino for his first “Coffee with your Congressman” event. Saturday’s meeting was the first in an ongoing series of intimate and informal sessions with constituents, a program Rep. Aguilar originally started when he served on the Redlands City Council.

“This was an incredible opportunity to hear directly from residents about problems they’re facing each and every day. I’m grateful to have spent my Saturday morning with members of the community to discuss a wide array of issues, from job creation to transportation and infrastructure to Social Security and Medicare. The Inland Empire’s middle-class families are still on the road to recovery since the recession, and events like this allow me to hear firsthand about their experiences,” said Rep. Aguilar.

He added, “When I served on the Redlands City Council, I saw how helpful and effective these personal meetings were for both me and my constituents, which is why I wanted to continue this series as their Representative. I heard many touching stories and received important feedback, and I look forward to continuing these events with San Bernardino County residents in the coming weeks and months.”

Over 50 people attended the meeting on Saturday morning at Mitla Café. “Coffee with your Congressman” will be a recurring event for Rep. Aguilar, with later dates to be announced in the coming weeks. The San Bernardino County Sun covered the event. It can be read here.
