Lawmakers plan telephone town hall

Two state lawmakers from Snohomish County have scheduled a telephone town hall meeting from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Rep. Dan Kristiansen, R-Snohomish, and Rep. Elizabeth Scott, R-Monroe, plan to host the conversation, which is similar a call-in radio show.

They expect to take questions and share their thoughts on the 2014 legislative session, public policy issues and the Oso landslide.

Constituents can call 1-800-759-5313 to join the talk. Once connected, they can listen in from homes and press the star key on their telephone keypad to ask questions.

Questions prior to the telephone town hall meeting can be directed to Kristiansen at 360-786-7967 or dan.kristiansen@leg.wa.gov. Scott can be reached at 360-786-7816 or elizabeth.scott@leg.wa.gov.

The 2014 legislative session ended March 13. The 2015 legislative session is set to begin January 12.
