Sen. Brad Hawkins is inviting the public to join him later this month in North Bend, Carnation and Monroe to preview the Legislative Session. The meetings will provide opportunities for new 12th District residents to get to know the senator, share insights on issues important to them, and ask questions about state government.
The three events will be held at:
- North Bend City Hall – Wednesday, Dec. 28 at 4 p.m.
- Carnation City Hall – Thursday, Dec. 29 at 6:30 p.m.
- Monroe City Hall – Friday, Dec. 30 at 4 p.m.
“These meetings will be a great way to preview the session and connect with people,” said Hawkins. “The recent redistricting process significantly changed the boundaries of the 12th District, which now crosses the Cascade Mountains to include portions of Snohomish and King counties. I am excited for the opportunity to meet with new constituents personally and hear directly from them.”
Hawkins visited the communities last month and has participated in meetings in recent weeks on issues, primarily with city officials, school leaders and first responders but these meetings are intended for broader community participation.
North Bend Mayor Rob McFarland, Carnation City Manager Ana Cortez and Monroe Mayor Geoffrey Thomas will host the events, introduce Hawkins and facilitate dialogue.
The 2023 Legislative session begins on January 9 and is expected to last 105 days.
