Hundreds of Coastsiders and other San Mateo County residents showed up for Congresswoman Jackie Speier's town hall meeting on health care reform. The meeting was moved from the Cypress Inn conference center to the Farallone View multipurpose room and finally to the school playground to accommodate the crowds. While the majority of attendees supported of the House plan to reform health care, a strong and vocal majority minority opposed reform. The discussion was spirited and vocal, but never got out of hand. Speier can be seen on the left in the white jacket. Click for larger image.
