Larsen to Host First Telephone Town Hall with 2nd District Constituents</A

May 16, 2008

Washington, D.C. — On Monday May 19, U.S. Representative Rick Larsen (WA-02) will host his first telephone town hall with constituents from across the 2nd Congressional District to update them about his work for Northwest Washington, hear their thoughts and concerns, and answer questions.  Larsen will make the call from his office in Washington, D.C. to speak with constituents from Island, Snohomish, Skagit, San Juan, Whatcom and King Counties.

“I’m looking forward to hosting my first telephone town hall with 2nd District Constituents,” said Larsen. “I regularly host in-person town halls across the 2nd District.  Those events are well-attended, but it can be difficult for some people to find time away from their families and day-to-day responsibilities to attend an event outside the home. This telephone town hall gives constituents another opportunity to share their thoughts and ask me questions.”

Call-in number for press and constituents (please feel free to publish in advance): (866) 447-5149, code 13740

Reporters are welcome to listen to the call. Due to the large number of constituents expected to participate, we ask that press not ask questions on the call.  If you are a reporter planning to call in, please RSVP to Amanda.mahnke@mail.house.gov.
