Evan Meyer welcomes U.S. Congressman Jay Obernolte on this episode of Meyerside Chats.
Recorded December 15, 2022
Evan Meyer welcomes U.S. Congressman Jay Obernolte on this episode of Meyerside Chats. 
U.S. Congressman Jay Obernolte proudly represents California’s 8th District in the U.S. House of Representatives. A video game developer and business owner, Rep. Obernolte is dedicated to ensuring the High Desert, Eastern Sierras, and Inland Empire have a strong voice fighting for their interests in Congress.
Rep. Obernolte serves on the committees on Natural Resources, Budget, and Science, Space, and Technology and in a leadership role as the freshman class representative to the House Republican Policy Committee. He is dedicated to using these positions to defend the vast public lands that make up California’s 8th District, control federal spending, and tackle major issues such as technology policy reform and digital privacy.
Meyerside Chats seeks to eliminate the “us and them” narrative and toxic polarization by striving to create virtuous community leadership and authentic conversation.  The intent is to showcase the humanity in those that take on the often thankless jobs of public service through civil discourse, and honoring differing points of view.
