Congressman Jimmy Panetta has been in the Monterey Bay area for a couple of weeks, traveling throughout his district. The KAZU News team sat down with him last week to ask “Where We’re At” on some of the top issues affecting our community.
Democrat Jimmy Panetta is running for reelection in Congress against Independent Ron Kabat. The 20th District covers the Monterey Bay Area and southern Monterey County. Panetta just completed his first term ever in elected office.
Ron Kabat is not a newcomer to politics. This is the third time he has run for the Congressional seat that represents the Monterey Bay area. This time he’s running against incumbent Democrat Jimmy Panetta. Kabat is a CPA who lives in Carmel and first came to the region while serving on Fort Ord.
