Rep. Schmick to host ‘telephone town hall’ Feb. 2

Hour-long, district-wide call allows constituents to participate, ask their legislator questions from home

Rep. Joe Schmick, R-Colfax, is inviting constituents in the 9th Legislative District to participate in a telephone town hall meeting Thursday, Feb. 2.  The community conversation begins at 6:35 p.m. and will last one hour.

To participate, residents may call the toll-free number at 1-877-229-8493 and enter the code 15440 when prompted.  During the telephone town hall, Schmick will listen to residents, answer questions and discuss a variety of topics related to the 2012 session.  Once on the line, participants may select star 3 on their telephone keypads to ask a question or they can simply listen in and take part in instant polls.  There will also be an opportunity at the end of the call to leave a message for Schmick.

“The Legislature is currently working through a $1.5 billion budget shortfall. In the first couple weeks of session we have also heard proposals for education reforms, new transportation revenues, job creation measures, and many other critical issues,” said Schmick.  “I always like to hear from constituents on these and other issues that concern them, and this teleforum is a great opportunity to connect with residents spread out across our legislative district.”

Constituents who are unable to participate in the telephone town hall meeting can reach Schmick at his legislative office at (360) 786-7844 or
