Assemblywoman Audra Strickland will be in Newbury Park Friday morning to meet with constituents. The coffee is a get-together with voters she represents in the state Assembly, but she may also be answering questions on her race against Linda Parks for the Ventura County Board of Supervisors. Parks is seeking her third term in the June 8 election. The coffee is scheduled from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at Pickles Deli & Restaurant, 1940 Newbury Road, Suite 100.
