State Senator Brad Hawkins’ 7th annual 12th District “listening tour” will take place September 5th through 8th. This year’s listening tour will be split between the traditional areas of the 12th District and the new areas of the district resulting from last year’s state redistricting. The first portion of the tour will take place on Tuesday, September 5th for Chelan County and East Wenatchee residents. The remaining tour will take place September 6-8 in the King and Snohomish counties portion of the new 12th District. Annual listening tours in the fall help connect Senator Hawkins with the various communities throughout the district and prepare him for the legislative sessions each winter. Many past listening tour ideas have resulted in legislation and budget items. Senator Hawkins will be making stops throughout the district by scheduled appointments. In addition to the various appointments available for scheduling, the senator will host a Town Hall listening session at the Monroe School District Board Room (14692 179th Ave. SE) on Wednesday, September 6th from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
