Shea seeks citizen input, questions during Feb. 8 telephone town hall meeting

Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley, is inviting citizens throughout the 4th Legislative District to join him Wednesday evening, Feb. 8, for a telephone town hall meeting.

The forum is similar to a radio call-in talk show. Citizens may call a toll-free number, ask questions to Shea during the one-hour telephone conference, and participate in issue-based surveys.

“This is a very convenient way for constituents to discuss their concerns and ask questions about state government and pending legislation. They can participate from the comfort of their homes,” said Shea.

“The Legislature will be directly at the halfway mark of its scheduled 60-day session the night I am holding this teleforum. In the coming days, we will be voting on some very important issues that could have significant effects on the 4th District and statewide. I want to hear from our citizens and get their viewpoints on the issues that matter to them,” added Shea.

To connect to the Shea teleconference, call toll-free at 1-877-229-8493 and enter PIN number 15550 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. People may choose to stay on the line and if they have a question, press *3 (star 3) on their telephone keypads to talk with Shea. Callers have complete control over how they choose to participate and how long they wish to stay connected.

“I encourage our local citizens to call in and become involved in the legislative process,” said Shea.
