Shea invites 4th District citizens to call him during telephone town hall meeting

Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley, is inviting citizens throughout the 4th Legislative District to join him Wednesday evening, Feb.22, for a telephone town hall meeting. The event was originally scheduled for Feb. 8, but Shea postponed it since it potentially conflicted with floor debate on Senate Bill 6239, the same-sex marriage bill.

“Now that we are past the first floor cutoff of the session, it’s a good time to hold this teleforum and listen to what citizens back home are saying. I’m very interested to hear from them and get their viewpoints on the issues before the Legislature,” said Shea.

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.

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.
