Discussion to include recap of the 2021 legislative session and to take questions from constituents
Sen. Lynda Wilson, Rep. Vicki Kraft and Rep. Paul Harris, all Republicans from Vancouver, are inviting 17th District citizens to join them for a virtual town hall meeting to recap and discuss the unprecedented 2021 legislative session, and to hear from constituents.
“The pandemic is causing us to meet virtually once again, but it didn’t prevent the majority party from going ahead with some very controversial legislation that simply is not necessary,” said Wilson, who is the Senate Republican budget leader. “The people we serve really need to know what’s in store for them, and I look forward to engaging with them and hearing their opinions and concerns.”

“Much of the legislation passed this session is very troubling and it’s going to negatively impact families in the 17th District and throughout the state,” said Kraft. “This meeting will be an excellent way to inform our constituents about this new legislation, as well as answer their questions, and discuss their comments and concerns.”
The remote town hall meeting will be conducted using the Zoom platform on Thu., May 13 at 6 p.m. Those who would like to participate in the 90-minute event must pre-register in advance for the conference by going to any of the three legislators’ websites:
“I enjoyed hearing from our constituents when we did this back in March, and I’m looking forward to meeting with them again,” said Harris. “I know people have a lot of questions about the many significant pieces of legislation that were pushed through this session. I’m happy to listen and answer their questions.”
The meeting can only accommodate the first 500 attendees, so participants should register early. Participants can register at tinyurl.com/17LD-town-hall.Information provided by Washington State House Republicans, houserepublicans.wa.gov
