Frockt to host town hall meetings with seatmates

December 20th, 2017|

Sen. David Frockt, Rep. Gerry Pollet and Rep. Javier Valdez will host a pair of town hall meetings in the first week of January.

The meetings offer constituents an opportunity to ask questions of their 46th District legislators prior to the 2018 legislative session that convenes on Jan. 8.

The legislators want to hear their communities’ concerns about issues facing the state and district, including the public education system, access to health care, affordable housing, protecting the environment, a fairer tax system, and protecting immigrant communities. They anticipate a meaningful dialogue on whatever is on constituents’ minds, from statewide policy issues to local community matters.

The first town hall meeting is scheduled for 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 2 at the Lake Forest Park City Hall at 17425 Ballinger Way NE in Lake Forest Park.

The second meeting is scheduled for 7 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 3 at the Nathan Hale High School Performing Arts Center at 10750 30th Ave. NE in Seattle.

Frockt calls for early action on construction budget

December 14th, 2017|

Sen. David Frockt, D-Seattle, released this statement today following the release of Gov. Inslee’s proposed capital construction budget for 2018:

“I share the governor’s urgency in passing a long-delayed construction budget. His construction budget proposal rightly builds upon the four-corner agreement on a construction budget last July that has yet to receive a vote in the Senate.

“It’s time now for the Legislature to pass a construction budget based on the July 18th agreement and address our urgent infrastructure needs and make important investments in school construction, housing and mental health. As the Senate’s lead negotiator on this matter, I will be pushing for early action when the Legislature convenes in January.”
