Reps. Norma Smith and Barbara Bailey will hold three town hall meetings in the 10th District later this month.
The meetings will be in Stanwood, Oak Harbor and Freeland on Saturday, March 19.
“At this crucial time in the 2011 Legislative Session, it is critical that we hear from those we represent to discuss the issues before us in the Legislature right now,” said Smith, R-Clinton. “The stories I hear from constituents inform my decisions in Olympia, and I look forward to the opportunity to answer questions, and hear your concerns.”
Bailey also encouraged residents to attend one of the upcoming meetings.
“With so many big issues to be decided from now until the end of the legislative session, it’s very important that we get input from the people we represent," said Bailey, R-Oak Harbor.
"From bills to strengthen the economy, and legislation to reform our ferry system, to what the final budgets will look like, I look forward to the exchange of ideas,” she said “I encourage everyone to attend and we hope the locations are convenient for people. If someone is unable to attend, they are welcome to contact us any time.”
The first meeting is at 9:30 a.m. in the board room for the Stanwood/Camano School District, at 26920 Pioneer Highway, Stanwood.
The second meeting is 1 p.m, in Oak Hall Room 306, Skagit Valley College, 1900 SE Pioneer Way, Oak Harbor.
The third town hall starts at 3:30 p.m. at Freeland Hall, 1515 Shoreview Drive.
