The Jan. 7 meetings will be the first town halls held in the 18th District since new district boundaries took effect midway through 2022

Residents of the 18th Legislative District are invited to town hall meetings this coming Saturday, just ahead of the 2023 legislative session.

Locations and times are:

  • Battle Ground: 10-11:30 a.m., City Hall, 109 SW 1st St.
  • Vancouver: 12:30-2 p.m., Three Creeks Community Library, 800-C NE Tenney Road

Sen. Ann Rivers will be joined by Rep.-elect Stephanie McClintock and Rep.-elect Greg Cheney. The Jan. 7 meetings will be the first town halls held in the 18th District since new district boundaries took effect midway through 2022, shifting the 18th more toward the center of Clark County.

The boundaries for all 49 legislative districts and 10 congressional districts in Washington were redrawn by a non-partisan, voter-created commission, using results of the 2020 U.S. Census, and were adopted during the 2022 legislative session.

“Town halls are a traditional way to get acquainted and hear directly from the people,” said Rivers, R-La Center, “and now is a great time to meet, with our annual session beginning Monday. I’m especially looking forward to gathering in person again, instead of remotely.

“Public safety and the cost of living are concerns for many in our district, and parents of school-age children are also wondering how the state is going to deal with the learning loss resulting from school closures,” Rivers added. “It’ll be very helpful to listen about those issues and more just before heading to the Capitol.”

    Town Halls are a typical method to tap dance, placate, and ignore.

    Leftists will be there demanding abortion protections like they don’t have any now, issues like tax cuts will be asked about (No legislator from the 18th, regardless of party, has voted to increase our taxes more than Rivers) the fact that all GOP legislative seats are buried in the minority and, so sorry, we really can’t do much of anything so don’t expect much from us… and, of course, Rivers will continue to make excuses for cosponsoring moronic democrat bills like the unconstitutional corporate gender-diversity bill requiring 25% female, or THOSE WHO EVEN CLAIM TO BE FEMALE, as port of their corporate board makeup and why she abandoned us on the I-5 bridge replacement scam (You know, the old “business decision” garbage kind of thing?)

    Spare yourself. These are a total waste of time. When you have legislators allegedly representing a district that opposes tax increases (like the gas tax/tab fee increases) only to vote for them under the assurance that the new tax we’ll get hammered with this month would NOT take place… and then turn around and vote for massive property tax increases that were obvious BEFORE the unconstitutional McCleary budget vote she took that caused our property taxes to explode, only to blame the auditor when the obvious massive tax increases became true… not to mention the ongoing school levy efforts that were supposed to disappear once that teacher extortion budget was passed…. then what difference does it make what they say or claim, or tell you they’ll do?

    Waste of time. Even Herrera knew that, which is part of why she didn’t have them.
