Dear Friends and Neighbors,

You may have read about our town hall events and this Thursday’s informational transportation meeting in Issaquah in our local papers. This is just a quick reminder and my personal invitation to you to attend any or all of the meetings scheduled around the 5th District. I represent you and, as you know, we may have a special session in November to debate, and possibly vote on, a transportation tax package. This Thursday’s meeting will allow you to share your thoughts and ask questions of local transportation leaders and your state representatives and senator.

I hope you will join the discussion! If you are unable to attend the meetings, please always feel free to call or e-mail me with your thoughts and questions. My contact information is at the bottom of this e-mail.
