My Meeting with David Bobzien

During our three weeks in the US in January Alex and I got to spend four days in northern Nevada (more on that later). Before heading out to California, we met newly elected Assembly member David Bobzien for coffee. I had sent him an email a couple weeks earlier requesting an autograph for my collection and he suggested meeting for coffee at Bibo Coffee Co on Mt Rose St in Reno.

David's an intelligent guy who will surely make his constituents proud. We talked about his victory over an incumbent Republican and what it took (a lot of door knocking after work) to get elected.

His first week in the Assembly (after being sworn in January) started on Monday with the election of Nevada's first female Speaker, Barbara Buckley. David said that he'll try to post updates on the blog he started during his campaign and has just posted about the first 24 hours.

Unfortunately, David's district only covers a part of Reno and does not stretch up to Lake Tahoe. Since Tahoe is now represented by James Settelmayer and the joke that is Ty Cobb (someone please tell him that the Nevada Assembly ain't the House of Representatives!), I hereby declare David Bobzien honorary Assembly member for Lake Tahoe! David, watch out for the interests of the Lake!
