As a longtime advocate for veterans, Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) will host two upcoming events focused on ensuring veterans have access to essential information about critical services offered to them.
On Tuesday, July 31 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Congressman will host the next in his series of veterans town halls at Health Plan of San Joaquin in French Camp. He will again be joined by representatives from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), who will give an update on the progress of the French Camp health care facility.
The Health Plan of San Joaquin is at 7751 S. Manthey Road in French Camp.
Previous town halls in this series were held this past January and last August in response to community queries about changes to the French Camp clinic construction timeline. Congressman McNerney is continuing with this series to ensure transparency and accountability, and to give the community the opportunity to have their questions and concerns directly addressed.
Additionally, Congressman McNerney will host a Veterans Resource Fair on Saturday, Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to noon at San Joaquin County WorkNet, 56 S. Lincoln St., Stockton.
Representatives from federal and state agencies, non-profits and educational institutions will be available to discuss services and opportunities for veterans, and to hand out resources to those interested. Confirmed service providers attending the event include: VA Palo Healthcare System, VA Oakland Regional Office, VA Cemetery Administration, San Joaquin County Veteran’s Services Office, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Dignity’s Alcove, CA Employment Development Department (EDD), American Legion Karl Ross Post 16, Swords to Plowshares, CA47-Delta Patriots Blue Star Moms, Sacramento Vet Center, San Joaquin Building Trades and VA Northern California Healthcare System.
For more information or to RSVP to either event, call the Congressman’s Stockton office at (209) 476-8552.
Rep. McNerney serves the constituents of California’s 9th Congressional District that includes portions of San Joaquin, Contra Costa, and Sacramento counties.
