24th District legislators to host Feb. 1 telephone town hall

All three lawmakers from the 24th Legislative District are scheduled to host a telephone town hall starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 1.

“It’s important to hear directly from the people we represent,” said Sen. Kevin Van De Wege (D-Sequim). “I always learn something when we have a town hall meeting, whether it’s in person or by telephone.”

Most families who live in the 24th District should get a phone call at 6 p.m. All they have to do to participate is to stay on the line; to ask questions, press *3 on the phone.

Families that don’t get a call at 6 p.m. can dial toll-free to join at 877-229-8493 and use the event code 116289 when prompted.

“Our district is so large that it would be impossible for folks in Aberdeen and Port Angeles to attend the same town hall meeting,” said Rep. Steve Tharinger (D-Sequim).

“Telephone town halls are a great way to get all of the people we represent on the same line, listening to the same questions and answers,” he said.

Residents can also listen and participate by visiting vekeo.com/whdc24/ and clicking on the “Let’s Talk” tab to fill out a short form with your name, phone number and email address.

“Your questions, ideas and stories are important to hear,” said Rep. Mike Chapman (D-Port Angeles).

“This legislative session, we keep asking ourselves how to put people first,” Chapman said. “The first step is listening to people, so we know what issues your family is wrestling with and how the legislature can make a difference in your community.”
