Baker hosts open house at new district office

First-term assemblywoman moves to San Ramon's Bishop Ranch 6

Tri-Valley Assemblywoman Catharine Baker (R-San Ramon) publicly welcomed the community to her new district office in San Ramon during an open house Tuesday evening.

"We are all at your beck and call," Baker said, encouraging the assembled group of constituents to contact her district office with any input or concerns.

The district office of the first-term State Assembly member, who represents Pleasanton, is located at Bishop Ranch 6, Suite 345 in San Ramon.

Her original district office, in Bishop Ranch 2, had to be vacated as part of pending work associated with the planned San Ramon City Center project, according to Baker's district staff.

Baker acknowledged with a grin that her event, attended by several dozen people, had to compete with a popular Bay Area-wide event Tuesday night -- the Golden State Warriors' appearance in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The open house attendees included local elected officials from throughout Baker's 16th State Assembly District as well as the area's new state senator, Steve Glazer (D-Orinda).

Baker shook hands and spoke with constituents at the beginning of the event before giving opening remarks to the remaining attendees and hosting a question-and-answer session. Her presentation featured an overview of her legislative actions to date, including bills written, votes taken and committee assignments.

"I'm tremendously honored to serve our great community," she said.

Baker's district also includes the San Ramon Valley, Dublin, Lafayette, Livermore, Moraga, Orinda and Walnut Creek.
