Sen. Lynda Wilson, Rep. Paul Harris, both R-Vancouver, and Rep. Kevin Waters, R-Stevenson, are inviting constituents in the 17th District to join them for a pair of town-hall meetings to discuss the ongoing 2023 legislative session.
“There’s a lot of news to share from the first half of the session, and a lot of new people to meet because the boundaries of the district recently changed,” said Wilson. “I appreciate it so much when our constituents take time to come and discuss the issues and share their concerns, because it helps us to better represent their views at the Capitol.”
“I really enjoy hearing from our constituents, and I’m looking forward to meeting with them in-person again,” said Harris. “These meetings are a great opportunity for people to get answers to their questions about everything happening this session.”
The two meetings will take place on Saturday, March 18 at these times and locations:
- 10-11 a.m. – Port of Camas-Washougal24 South ‘A’ Street, Washougal, WA 98671
- 1-2 p.m. – Exhibit Hall at the Fairgrounds710 SW Rock Creek Drive, Stevenson, WA 98648
“As a freshman legislator, this will be my first opportunity to meet with the people of my district in a town hall meeting,” said Waters. “So much has happened this session and it’s been a whirlwind. It will be nice to get back to my district and reconnect with the people I represent.”
The 2023 legislative session is scheduled to end on April 23.
