    3rd Legislative District delegation to hold mobile office meetings

3rd Legislative District delegation to hold mobile office meetings

October 6th, 2015|

Spokane – On Thursday, Spokane’s 3rd Legislative District delegation will organize a mobile office meeting to get in touch with constituents. This meeting will include members of the district delegation, Sen. Andy Billig, D-Spokane, Rep. Timm Ormsby, D-Spokane, and Rep. Marcus Riccelli, D-Spokane.

The mobile office will provide constituents the opportunity to make comments and ask questions about state government. This feedback is important and helps the members represent their constituents when in Olympia. “The mobile office affords residents who can’t visit our Spokane or Olympia offices an additional opportunity to meet and speak directly with us,” said Billig. “When I became a legislator, one of my main goals was to make state government more accessible. By setting up a mobile office in a Spokane neighborhood, we’re able to interact more directly with our constituents.”

The location and time for this year’s mobile office is:

Thursday, Oct. 8

Saranac Commons

19 W. Main

4 to 5:30 p.m.
