OLYMPIA… Residents of the 18th Legislative District are invited to join their state lawmakers for a “telephone town hall” meeting from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 22.
The telephone-based format, which is similar to a conference call, will allow Sen. Ann Rivers, Rep. Brandon Vick and Rep. Larry Hoff to engage with constituents while observing pandemic-related safety precautions. Many district residents will receive phone calls inviting them to join the meeting; people wanting to participate may also dial (360) 226-0858 to be connected.
“I’m looking forward to hearing from citizens of the 18th District,” said Vick, R-Vancouver. “This will be a great opportunity to share what we’ve been doing in the Legislature, but more importantly to listen to our constituents and receive their valuable input and feedback.”
“While it would be great to be able to meet in person at venues around the district, as we have done many times in the past, this telephone town hall format is a good alternative,” said Hoff, R-Vancouver. “I’m looking forward to hearing directly from our constituents and having productive conversations about how we can continue partnering together to solve the growing number of challenges we face.”
“I’ve had close to 70 town hall meetings during my years as a legislator, and all have been in person because it’s my favorite way to connect with the people I serve. It’s disappointing that we can’t meet face-to-face this time, because of how it would limit participation, but I know our constituents will understand,” said Rivers, R-La Center. “Meeting by telephone is easy and convenient, and I’m sure we will have a productive conversation.”
