Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, Rep. Mary Lou Dickerson and Rep. Reuven Carlyle will host a town hall meeting to talk about the 2010 Legislative session and what future steps our state should take. The town hall will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 19th at the Q Café.
“For the past two legislative sessions, the state has faced fiscal challenges not seen since the Great Depression,” Kohl-Welles said. “We will be sharing with constituents how the Legislature addressed these challenges in passing the operating budget with a combination of budget cuts, new revenue and closing of tax loopholes, federal stimulus funds and using some of the reserves.”
“We have a lot to talk about,” Dickerson said.
The legislators will also discuss issues including legislation affecting the 36th District (which includes Magnolia) and take comments and questions from constituents.
“While email and phone calls during session are great, getting together and talking about our community is hugely informative and motivating as a lawmaker,” Carlyle said. “Our state is facing huge issues, and we need everyone involved in the solutions.”
The Q Café is located at 3223 15th Ave West in Interbay, just south of the Ballard Bridge by the Quest Church.
