43rd District legislators to hold March 12 town hall

OLYMPIA – House Speaker Frank Chopp, Sen. Ed Murray and Rep. Jamie Pedersen will hold a town hall meeting on March 12 at 2 p.m. at the Seattle First Baptist Church on Capitol Hill in Seattle. The lawmakers are taking a brief pause from the 2011 legislative session in Olympia to hear what’s on the minds of their constituents in the 43rd Legislative District.

As the Legislature works to address a large budget shortfall this session, the discussion is expected to center on state funding and economic issues, in addition to transportation, health care, safety-net services, civil rights, education, public safety and more.

The event is free and open to all constituents of the 43rd Legislative District, which includes Capitol Hill, University District, Madison Park, Broadmoor, Montlake, Wallingford, Eastlake, Greenlake and parts of Fremont, Ravenna, South Lake Union and downtown Seattle.

The 2011 legislative session began in January and will continue through late-April.
