Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia to Host Second Round of Meet and Greets Saturday

In case you missed the first three Meet the Mayor events, the invitation still stands, as Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia will hold three more meet and greets on Saturday, March 5.

The events are free and open to the public, conveniently located at three different spots where food and coffee can be purchased.

According to the February announcement, no formal program will be implemented, but the mayor plans to stay at each location for “about an hour,” so come with your questions, concerns and comments.


“I’m looking forward to hearing from constituents, answering questions about issues important to our community, and saying hello to residents,” said Garcia in a statement. 

The three events will take place at the following locations and times:

  • 1:00PM | Bagelry & Bistro | 5514 East Britton Drive
  • 2:30PM | Roots Gourmet | 6473 East Pacific Coast Highway
  • 4:00PM | Portfolio Coffeehouse | 2300 East 4th Street

This will be Garcia’s second round of Meet the Mayor events. He stated that he plans to host more over the coming months to connect with fellow residents.
