The 36th District encompasses Ballard, Greenwood, Queen Anne, Magnolia, Interbay, Belltown, and parts of Phinney Ridge and Fremont.

“I look forward to our town hall every year,” Kohl-Welles said. “It is a unique opportunity to gather with constituents and discuss issues that are important in our neighborhoods, city and state.”

“Having a meaningful, engaging dialogue with citizens is a crucial part of our democracy,” Carlyle said. “We’re eager to talk about the successes and failures from this past legislative session, and dive into the issues you care about.”

“Constituent engagement is a critical part of the legislative process,” said Tarleton. “It’s absolutely essential that our neighbors make their voices heard.”

Legislative town halls are typically held during or soon after the legislative session, and provide lawmakers and constituents the opportunity to speak in person about issues that are important to the district. Kohl-Welles, Carlyle and Tarleton will also provide an overview of what bills were passed during the 2014 legislative, including the supplemental operating and transportation budgets, and what work did not get done. The session adjourned Sine Die a few minutes before midnight on March 13th.
