When she took office in January 2009, Supervisor Parker committed to hosting an ''agenda review'' every week prior to meetings of the Board of Supervisors. In 2009, dozens of Monterey County residents participated in this weekly discussion that was held in Marina. Each week Jane reviewed the upcoming Board agenda, commented on specific items of interest, and listened to the thoughts and priorities of residents who attended. 

In 2010,  Supervisor Jane Parker moved her weekly meetings to Salinas at the Cherry Bean Coffee House.
In 2011 she will be hosting her Hot Topics meetings in Seaside at the Seaside Public Library.
In addition to reviewing interesting items from the Board agenda, she will listen to your ideas and suggestions. Everyone is welcome to attend, meet with Jane, and learn more about your County government.
