Rivers sets Feb. 17 town halls in Camas, Battle Ground, Ridgefield

OLYMPIA… Sen. Ann Rivers will hold three town-hall meetings across her Clark County legislative district on Saturday, Feb. 17. The 18th District lawmaker said she wants to check in with her constituents before the Legislature enters the homestretch of its 2018 session.

“We’re at the point where the bills still under consideration have already been passed by the Senate or the House of Representatives, so they’re halfway to becoming law,” said Rivers, R-La Center. “This is a good time to not only take questions but also to let people know where certain issues stand, especially proposals having to do with taxes and health care.

“It’s an opportunity for me to learn what’s in the hearts of my constituents so I can take that back to the Capitol ahead of the votes that will define this year’s session. ”

The meeting locations span the 18th Legislative District represented by Rivers since 2011:

9 a.m. — Camas City Hall, 616 N.E. 4th Avenue, Camas

11 a.m. – Battle Ground City Hall, 109 S.W. 1st Street, Battle Ground

1 p.m. – Clark County Fire & Rescue, Station 21, 911 N. 65th Avenue, Ridgefield
