Lawmakers to host town hall meetings this weekend

Five of the area's state lawmakers plan to host town hall meetings during the Presidents Day holiday weekend, giving residents a chance to quiz them about possible budget cuts, new taxes and education reform as well as the new law legalizing gay marriage.
•State Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D-Bothell, and state Reps. Derek Stanford, D-Bothell, and Luis Moscoso, D-Mountlake Terrace, who comprise the 1st Legislative District delegation, plan two events Saturday.
From 10 to 11:30 a.m., the trio will be in the large meeting room of the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue W. in Mountlake Terrace.
Then, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., they will be in Mobius Hall on the campus shared by Cascadia Community College and the University of Washington's Bothell campus. Mobius Hall is located in the Global Learning & the Arts Building, and UW Bothell is at 18345 Campus Way NE in Bothell.

•Rep. Hans Dunshee, D-Snohomish, of the 44th Legislative District is scheduled to hold public meetings in Mill Creek and Lake Stevens on Saturday.
