Talk with Rep. Carlyle before legislature convenes

Posted by Geeky Swedes on December 30th, 2009

36th District Rep Reuven Carlyle will be hosting four coffee hours around the district on Saturday, January 9 in order to meet with community members before the start of the upcoming legislative session.

“The Legislature convenes on January 11 and we’re again facing a massive deficit of nearly $3 billion,” Carlyle said in a press release today. “It’s critical that I hear from our community directly about your views, issues, concerns and thoughts on the budget, taxes, education and other important issues. I’m asking people to reach out and share your views so I can better represent you in Olympia during these difficult times.”

Coffee hour times and locations:

  • Crown Hill: 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at Caffé Fioré (3125 W 85th St.)
  • Greenwood: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Herkimer (7320 Greenwood Ave. N)
  • Magnolia: 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at Serendipity (3222 W McGraw St.)

      Well I was skeptical when I voted for him but so far I love what Carlyle's done.

      I paraphrase:

      “Let's pump the brakes on State spending for the Data Center bricks and instead get the technology up to date and integrated.” — completely makes sense to everyone not in bed w/ the building lobby.

      “Public Ed is in a crisis and UW Vice Provost Wise should spend every second of her day working for the shy 1/2 million the state pays her. Moonlighting on the Nike board is bad PR and she should donate the proceeds to scholarships.” — Yes finally someone gets it. WE pay you an ENORMOUS salary Wise. You don't get time off for a corporate boondoggle. Now get to fucking work!
