Rep. Smith to host community call-in program
January 18, 2012 · 9:56 AM
State Rep. Norma Smith will hold a telephone town hall for her constituents in the 10th Legislative District next week.
The tele-town hall is 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26. Organizers said the call-in program will last about an hour.
"The Legislature is currently working through a $1.5 billion budget shortfall," said Smith, R-Clinton.
"In the first couple weeks of session we have also heard proposals for education reforms, new transportation revenues, job creation measures, and many other critical issues. It is important I receive input from constituents on these difficult issues, and it is a great opportunity to connect with residents spread out across our legislative district,” she said.
To participate in the community conversation, residents can call the toll-free number 1-877-229-8493 and enter the code 14881 when prompted.
Smith will listen to residents, answer questions and discuss a variety of topics related to the 2012 session.
Participants may select "Star 3" on their telephone keypads to ask a question or listen in and take part in instant polls. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the call to leave a message for the 10th District lawmaker.
Constituents who are unable to participate in the telephone town hall meeting can reach Smith at her legislative office at 360-786-7884 or email email@example.com.
