Bob Hasegawa Town Hall

From Bob Hasegawa, Representative of the 11th Legislative District:

Hello District 11,

I am holding a town hall next week. Details are below. Hope you can all dial in!

Washington State House of Representatives
Rep. Bob Hasegawa – 11th Legislative District

Local legislator hosting telephone town hall March 2
Rep. Bob Hasegawa to discuss 2011 legislative session

At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, households across the 11th Legislative District will receive a phone call from State Rep. Bob Hasegawa (D-Seattle). Those who pick up will be invited to participate in a one-hour telephone town hall during which they can learn about the current legislative session and share their thoughts and questions with the lawmaker.

Only those with land lines will receive a phone call, so those wanting to participate via cell phone, or from somewhere other than their home can call toll-free 877-229-8493. The ID code is 15515. The number will be available about ten minutes before the town hall begins.

Hasegawa said this is a convenient way to reach out to constituents and get their input during a particularly difficult session when legislators must close a multi-billion dollar budget gap.

Rep. Bob Hasegawa (360) 786-7862, bob.hasegawa@leg.wa.gov

February General Membership meeting notes

Richard Conlin

The General Membership meeting was yesterday (2/15).  We had a very long and very nice visit from Richard Conlin, the Seattle City Council President.  The membership had lots of great questions and I’m sure the question and answer session could have gone on for hours.

Cara from Planned Parenthood

We were also visited by Cara Bilodeau of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest.  She talked about the various issues around funding family planning & cuts that have been proposed.

She also talked about bills HB1366 and SB5274 (the Limited Service Pregnancy Center Accountability Act).  Details for both can be found here:
