We’re now more than halfway between the 2013 and 2014 legislative sessions, and your 46th District Legislative Delegation wants to get in touch with you to talk about what happened during last year’s session. We also want to hear from you about what you want to see the legislature work on as we head into next year. To that end, Sen. David Frockt, Rep. Gerry Pollet and Rep. Jessyn Farrell will hold a town hall meeting on the evening of November 12th. It will be a great opportunity for our legislators to hear feedback from you on state government and the issues of concern to you.
The meeting will be at: North Seattle Community College Cafeteria, 9600 College Way N, November 12, 2013. Doors open at 5:30, program 6:00 to 7:30.
Our state legislators want to talk with you about issues like education, health care, transportation and creating jobs. Representatives from WithinReach will attend. WithinReach’s staff are trained to help people navigate the exchanges and sign up for health care coverage and they’ll be able to answer any specific questions about Affordable Care Act and the new health care exchanges. Accessing the new exchange is very important for people who don’t currently have affordable health insurance. If you can’t make it to the town hall and want to list some important issues for the attention of our state legislators, contact Sen. David Frockt at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the Seattle phone number – 206-729-3225 – or the Olympia phone number, which is 360-786-7690.
UPDATE: As of November 2013, one of the state senators, Ed Murray, has been elected to be Mayor of Seattle, so Mayor-elect Murray will be resigning from the state legislature. Sen. David Frockt will take over as interim leader of the Democratic Caucus of the State Senate. This means that Sen. Frockt, who represents Wedgwood in the legislature, will be in a position of increased responsibility and will help coordinate his party’s position on important issues.
On Thursday, November 14, Rep. Jessyn Farrell will speak at the Meadowbrook Community Council meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend and hear more about current issues.
