Schmick to host telephone town hall with constituents Jan. 28


Rep. Joe Schmick, R-Colfax, invites constituents to join him for a telephone town hall Thursday, Jan. 28, from 7 to 8 p.m.

The “teleforum” allows callers to listen in and ask questions of their representative from the comfort of their own home.  Citizens who wish to call in to the live conversation should dial 1-877-229-8493 and then enter pin number 15440.

“I'm excited to once again use this technology to reach out to my constituents who might otherwise be unable to drive over the mountains to Olympia to express their thoughts on the issues,” Schmick said. “We had great participation last year and I'm looking forward to speaking with the people I represent in the ninth district.”

The discussion topics will be set by callers who can ask Schmick about anything from the state budget to agriculture to education.  Members of the media are also encouraged to call and listen to the community conversation.

“My goal is to listen to my constituents and hear what they have to say about a variety of issues,” Schmick said. “It's important for people to have more opportunities to connect with their government, and this format encourages that.”

After the hour-long call, listeners will have a chance to record a voicemail with further questions or comments for the 9th District legislator.  Schmick can also be contacted through his Legislative Web site at or by phone at (360) 786-7844 or by e-mail at
