Capping off his morning travels on Tuesday June 28 with a lunch stop at the H–B Saloon, Congressman Jeff Denham heard from local constituents as he enjoyed the “Kim & Jim” special from the menu.

“Our big focus right now is jobs,” Denham said. “I’ll be meeting with various businesses, chambers, and individuals to see what we can do in congress.”

Denham’s travels are part of a scheduled “district workweek” that includes making visits at various locations within his 19th District that stretches from Fresno to north of Oakdale.

Denham’s day on June 28 started in Turlock for a similar sit-down breakfast with local constituents and then to the Turlock Chamber of Commerce to discuss small businesses.

Once arriving in Oakdale, Denham visited the historic Cowboy Museum before his working lunch break at H–B. Once inside the restaurant, he heard a multitude of issues from various concerned citizens.

“We have 89 new freshman members of Congress that are fired up and bringing hope,” said Denham about himself and the other new members that were elected to Congress last November when he addressed the group. “I came to hear from you though rather than filibuster about Washington.”

From the H–B, Denham was off to the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce where he met with officials from the city, Oak Valley Hospital, Oakdale Irrigation District and a few business leaders to hear local concerns.
