Assemblymember Marc Berman hosts “boba town hall”


State Assembly member and Paly class of 1998 alumnus Marc Berman will host a town hall for teens to discuss political issues, while sipping boba tea on Oct. 29 at Fremont High School.

Berman chairs the Powerful Assembly Elections and Redistricting Committee, dealing with issues related to voting rights, election security, and campaign finance. He represents the 24th Asssembly District, which stretches from Redwood City to Sunnyvale, and out to the coast.

The town hall event, called “Boba with Berman,” is designed for high school and college students to share their views on California legislation, and any issues they face.  Boba tea will be provided to all that attend, as stated on the website.

“The intention of the event is to make it convenient for students to come to hear updates about the legislature and to share their opinions on pressing issues,” Berman’s office stated in an email. “To make the event a little more enticing, we thought providing boba for every student that attends might sweeten the experience.”
