Local 5th District legislators to host town hall meetings March 12

Sen.Cheryl Pflug along with Reps. Jay Rodne and Glenn Anderson, invite 5th District residents to attend any or all of their upcoming town hall meetings in Maple Valley, Issaquah, and Snoqualmie. The in-person roundtable discussions will take place on Saturday, March 12.

Citizens who attend will receive an update on the 2011 legislative session. The legislators encourage citizens to bring their questions, comments and concerns about legislation, state government and issues affecting the district.

“I’m eager to hear from constituents…please bring all your questions and ideas. Even though the Legislature is struggling with an almost $5 billion deficit, I have hope for this session,” said Pflug, R-Maple Valley. “There is more bipartisan work searching for solutions, although it remains a challenge to get legislators to think outside of the historical box.”

“I’m looking forward to hearing what people have to say on the issues facing our communities,” said Rodne, R-North Bend. “So many important decisions will be made this legislative session and town hall meetings offer a great opportunity for an exchange of ideas and solutions. ”

“I hope residents can join us for these meetings to share their voice on the many difficult decisions facing the state, not the least of which is the budget,” said Anderson, R-Fall City. “I hosted a successful telephone town hall meeting a few weeks ago where I received great feedback, and I am hoping the upcoming forums will be equally so. I am looking forward to a good two-way dialog.”
