Sen. Ann Rivers, Rep. Stephanie McClintock and Rep. Greg Cheney will hold a pair of town halls this Saturday to update 18th Legislative District residents about the 2023 legislative session.
Locations and times are:

“We’re just past the halfway point of the session, with the biggest decisions still ahead. This is an ideal time to report on major issues like public safety, the cost of living, and education, and drill down into specifics like the learning loss among our K-12 students, and access and cost issues related to health care,” said Rivers, R-La Center, who is Republican leader on the Senate health-care committee.
“Receiving input from those we represent and listening to them is a vital aspect of our job,” said Cheney, R-Battle Ground. “I’m looking forward to a positive discussion on how the actions of the Legislature will impact the lives of Southwest Washington citizens.”
“I’m happy to get back to my district and share everything that is happening in Olympia with friends and neighbors in the 18th,” said McClintock, R-Vancouver. “We still have a lot of work to do this year. These meetings will be a great way to reconnect with our constituents and get their input.”
