Hear Influential Speakers from the Silicon Valley

Stay updated with current events while having lunch with League members.

Each month the League of Women Voters of San Jose/Santa Clara hosts informative speakers who address local and regional issues. These interactive public presentations focus on timely topics and encourage our audiences to become better informed citizens on important issues. The League of Women Voters invites you to join us at Lunch With League.

Thursday, April 19: Transportation

Our next Lunch with League is on Thursday, April 19 at 11:00 a.m. at Rookies Sports Bar, 1535 Meridian Av, #10, San Jose near Hamilton Ave.

Our April speaker is Jessie O'Malley Solis, Senior Real Estate Agent with the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). She manages VTA's Joint Development Program which works with municipal and private partners to encourage the development of housing, retail, and employment centers in places that will help increase VTA ridership and contribute to a vibrant community in Santa Clara County. Among VTA's Joint Development requirements is that a minimum 20% of housing on a particular site must be affordable.

Jessie will discuss how VTA's Joint Development Program is managed, and which development sites the VTA has decided to use in the South San Jose area. -->More information.
