Local lawmakers to host two town halls Saturday, March 16

Sen. Keith Wagoner and Reps. Carolyn Eslick and Robert J. Sutherland are inviting community members to their town hall meetings on Saturday, March 16, to hear a 2019 legislative session update and provide constituents the opportunity to share their opinions and ideas.

“Being a good leader means being a good listener,” said Wagoner, R-Sedro-Woolley. “I look forward to sharing details of work we’ve been doing in Olympia during the legislative session and hearing from community members on what issues are important to them.”

“One of my top priorities as a legislator is ensuring government is more accessible and accountable to the public,” said Eslick, R-Sultan. “Town hall meetings give us the opportunity to hear direct feedback from the people we serve. They are also a wonderful way for our communities to stay on top of news and events at the state Capitol. I hope to see you there!”

“These events give us the opportunity to provide you with an update on the things we’re working on in Olympia, and to talk about the public policy being introduced this session,” said Sutherland, R-Granite Falls. “We will be able to chat face-to-face on the issues and policy that matter the most to your way of life. I look forward to this time with you.”

The town hall meetings will take place at the following locations:

·       Darrington Library (1005 Cascade St.) from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

·       Concrete High School Commons (7830 S. Superior Ave.) from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
