“I look forward to hosting this workshop with the Concord Coalition and hearing from my constituents about their budget priorities. I value the input of my constituents, and it will serve as an opportunity to have a conversation about the many factors involved in creating a national budget,” said Swalwell. 

The workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday at the Castro Valley Library located at 3600 Norbridge Avenue.
