12th District residents invited to telephone town-hall meeting Feb. 25
The three lawmakers serving Washington’s 12th Legislative District – Rep. Cary Condotta, Rep. Brad Hawkins and Sen. Linda Evans Parlette – invite residents to join them for a telephone town-hall meeting starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Many across the district will receive phone calls just before the meeting begins, inviting them to stay on the line; those wishing to call in directly should dial 877-229-8493 (toll free) and press 112411 when asked.
“In a legislative district as large as ours, and knowing how unpredictable the winter weather can be, meeting by telephone while we’re in session at the Capitol is convenient and practical,” said Parlette, R-Wenatchee. “This is a great way to bring thousands of people together to discuss how decisions being considered in Olympia affect our part of the state, and Washington as a whole.”
“I enjoy every opportunity I have to touch base with the people I represent, and this is just another way I can hear from them about their priorities, concerns and questions,” said Hawkins, R-East Wenatchee. “I look forward to the conversation and hope a lot of people will participate.”
“We are in the final few weeks of the legislative session, but there are still many important issues being debated,” said Condotta, R-East Wenatchee. “This is a great opportunity for folks to weigh in. And this technology allows a large group of people to participate and to ask questions right from their own home.”
The Legislature’s regular session for 2014 is limited to 60 days and will end March 13.
Rep. Brad Hawkins, Rep. Cary Condotta and Sen. Linda Evans Parlette represents Washington’s 12th Legislative District, encompassing the Chelan and Douglas counties and parts of Grant and Okanogan counties.
