Tonight: Live tele town hall in the 3rd Legislative District

Rep. Timm Ormsby
Spokane residents, your 3rd District legislators are hosting a town hall via phone tonight, and they want to make sure you have a chance to join the conversation.
Representatives Timm Ormsby and Andy Billig,together with Senator Lisa Brown, will be calling households in the district this evening, beginning at around 6:00 p.m.  The purpose of the call is to reach out and give constituents an opportunity to ask them questions or share their concerns about the 2012 legislative session, which began on Monday.
Rep. Andy Billig
Here’s how it works:  Most people won’t have to do anything except answer the phone when it rings tonight, and stay on the line to be connected to the town hall.  To ask a question, simply press STAR 3 on the phone.  If you live in the 3rd Legislative District and do not receive a phone call, here are instructions for how you can still participate. The town hall will last approximately one hour.
Tonight’s tele town hall is another way for the legislators to be accessible.  Last fall, they held a series of mobile office events around the district, and last March they held two in-person town hall events.  Rep. Ormsby previously hosted a tele town hall in 2010.  You can see a transcript from that event here.
