Walsh, Nealey to hold telephone town hall meeting Feb. 22
Technology allows citizens to participate in a community conversation from their homes
With the Legislature entering its final weeks of the scheduled 60-day session, Reps. Maureen Walsh and Terry Nealey are reaching out through the telephone, Monday evening, Feb. 22, to listen to the viewpoints of 16th District residents. The two lawmakers are holding a telephone town hall meeting, in which citizens can participate from the comfort of their own homes.
“We're interested in hearing from people back home as we take our final votes in Olympia before the session concludes,” said Nealey, R-Dayton. “Thanks to this technology, we'll be able to communicate directly with many citizens throughout the district about issues important to them.”
“There are a lot of issues we're discussing in Olympia right now, from education to public safety and elections to human services,” said Walsh, R-Walla Walla. “I know people have concerns and this is a great opportunity for them to share some of those concerns with us. I am really looking forward to using this new technology to hear from folks back home.”
The teleforum works much like a call-in radio show. Participants will be able to listen to the call, or ask questions directly to their 16th District representatives. Constituents who would like to participate can dial in between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Monday by using a toll-free number: 1-877-229-8493 and entering PIN number 15516.
