MOUNTLAKE TERRACE LIBRARY

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON-BOTHELL
Agreeing that it’s a capital idea to boost citizen participation in the state-government process, the three 1st Legislative District lawmakers are looking forward to hosting their first Town Halls of the new year on Saturday, Feb. 18, in the large meeting room at the Mountlake Terrace Library and in Mobius Hall on the Cascadia Community College / University of Washington campus in Bothell.
The Mountlake Terrace Library Town Hall will run from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and the Cascadia Community College/UW-Bothell Town Hall will run from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Mountlake Terrace Library is located at 23300 58th Avenue West in Mountlake Terrace, and Cascadia/UW-Bothell is located at 18345 Campus Way Northeast in Bothell. (Mobius Hall is located in the Global Learning & the Arts Building CC3 on the Cascadia/UW-Bothell campus.)
State Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D-Bothell, and state Reps. Derek Stanford, D-Bothell, and Luis Moscoso, D-Mountlake Terrace, comprise the 1st Legislative District delegation to the 62nd Washington State Legislature. McAuliffe, Stanford, Moscoso, and the 144 other legislators are almost halfway finished with the work of the 2012 session in Olympia.
Certainly, the state’s multi-billion-dollar revenue crunch is commanding the lion’s share of media attention out of the state capital. But the three 1st District legislators also have their hands plenty full with a variety of other critical matters.
Specifically: McAuliffe, in her work as chair of the Senate Early Learning & K-12 Education Committee, addresses topics which hit home in every Washington community. Her two colleagues across the Capitol Rotunda are in on state-budget deliberations — Stanford as a member of the House Education Appropriations & Oversight Committee, and Moscoso as vice chair of the House General Government Appropriations & Oversight Committee.
The three legislators also all emphasized their great gratitude to the folks at the Mountlake Terrace Library and at Cascadia Community College/UW-Bothell for graciously making their excellent facilities available for the upcoming legislative Town Hall meetings.
