Rep. Marko Liias, D-Mukilteo, is using technology to hear his constituents’ concerns about the proposed budget and the $9 billion shortfall the state is facing.
Liias has scheduled a “virtual town meeting” for 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 7. At that time, phones across the 21st District – which includes Edmonds, Lynnwood and parts of Mountlake Terrace – will ring. When residents answer, they will have the opportunity to participate in the virtual meeting by simply staying on the line. Liias will answer questions from his constituents until 7 p.m.
“This is about making it easy for people to talk to me,” Liias said. “Two hundred is a fantastic turnout for a live town hall. But by phone, I can reach thousands of people, and they don’t even have to leave their homes.”
Those who do not get the chance to ask a question during the hour-long call will have the option to leave Liias a voicemail.
Cell phone users will not receive a call, but a toll-free number has been set up for 21st District residents that would like to participate. The number is available on Liias’ Web site, www.housedemocrats.wa.gov/members/liias.
