In some other parts of the country, the elected are shying away from town halls and meeting their constituents in person. The politicians serving Capitol Hill don’t have anything to be ashamed of, apparently. You can visit with a few of them coming up this month.
On Monday, March 6th, 7th District Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, the first Indian-American woman to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, will be at First Hill’s Town Hall to talk about her work in D.C. and take questions. “Town halls are an important way for constituents to connect with their representatives in government and hold them accountable,” Jayapal’s office writes. Take note, GOP.
The following weekend on Saturday, March 11th, the trio representing Capitol Hill in Olympia will be at Harvard Ave’s Seattle First Baptist Church to also set an excellent example for democracy:
This will be the first town hall for 43rd District rep and housing advocate Nicole Macri. CHS talked with the newly elected legislator and Capitol Hill resident about her plans to tackle housing, school funding, and Trump worries during her first term here.
