I will give Phil Ting credit for this – he holds a good number of town hall events, and having been to a few, can report they aren't too dog-and-pony-show-ish. There's generally opportunity to ask him stuff during, and if you don't get a chance during Q&A, you can often approach him in person afterward.
He is a politician and Democrat, and has his share of awful positions, but he's done some good stuff too.
