Dear Friends,

I am writing to invite you to participate in a Telephone Town Hall on help that is available to small businesses hurt by the Coronavirus/COVID-19 stay-at-home order.

This call-in event will be Tuesday, March 31 at 11:30 a.m.

My guests for this Town Hall will be:

Zae Perrin, president and CEO of the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce

Scott Rogalski, director of the Small Business Development Corporation for Northern California

Mark Herbert, California Vice President for Small Business Majority

These guests will address the challenges our small businesses are facing, financial relief that is available, and what you need to do to obtain it.

To listen to the Town Hall, call 844-767-5651 before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday and use this access code: 5142396#

Because of the number of participants expected, we will only be taking written questions for this conversation. Please submit any questions you may have before or during the call to [email protected]gov

You may submit questions whether or not you intend to participate. A recording of the Town Hall will be available at my website at  Recordings of the first seven Coronavirus Town Halls are already on the site.

I am holding these town halls to make experts available to answer your questions about this dangerous virus, how our public and private institutions are handling it, and what we can do as individuals to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.

I know that these developments have created great stress on everyone. Thank you for taking the time to be as informed as possible so we can keep each other safe.
