Pierce County lawmakers O’Ban, Muri to host telephone town hall

Sen. Steve O’Ban, and Rep. Dick Muri invite residents to join them for a live telephone town hall Thursday, January 28. The live, hour-long event begins at 6:00 p.m. The community conversation is much like an interactive radio program, during which listeners may ask questions or just listen to the conversation about issues that affect their district and state.

“Hearing directly from you is incredibly valuable especially during the legislative session when we’re in Olympia representing our community,” said O’Ban, R-Pierce County. “The telephone forum is a great way for us to provide you real-time updates on what we’re working on and where important bills are in the legislative process.”

Participants will have the opportunity to simply listen in to the conversation, or speak directly with their elected officials. Legislators will also ask residents to take part in instant-result poll questions with their phones.

“This is a great opportunity to connect with constituents during the legislative session and gain valuable insights into issues that matter most to them,” said Muri, R-Steilacoom.

To join the call, residents can dial toll-free (253) 200-3122 on the night of the event and follow the prompts to join the conversation.

No RSVP is required to join the event, and members of the media are also encouraged to listen in. Participants can also submit questions in advance via email by contacting Steve.OBan@leg.wa.gov or Dick.Muri@leg.wa.gov.
