Sen. Rivers and Rep. Vick to host education-focused town hall meetings in the 18th District

In light of ongoing education discussions and recent teacher walk-outs taking place throughout Washington state, Sen. Ann Rivers and Rep. Brandon Vick will be hosting two town halls Saturday, May 23 to hear directly from residents of the 18th District. The meetings will focus on the Legislature's attempts to ramp up K-12 education funding and the current “rolling” special session.

“We recognize and value the job teachers do and we want to ensure educators have a complete picture of the education funding discussions happening in Olympia,” said Rivers, R- La Center. “Hearing what's on the hearts and minds of teachers is important to keeping the line of communication open between educators and lawmakers. Budget negotiations have been, and continue to be in the teachers' best interests.”

The two community events are scheduled as follows:

Camas Public Library, meeting room A/B — 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
625 NE 4th Avenue
Camas, WA

Clark County Fire Station at Dollars Corner — 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
21609 NE 72nd Avenue
Battle Ground, WA

“As budget negotiations continue, it's important we hear directly from our constituents about their concerns and priorities,” said Vick, R-Felida. “A lot of attention has recently been drawn toward K-12 education funding, and it's critical we inform communities of the Eighteenth District on progress toward providing students and teachers the tools they need to succeed.”

Those unable to attend the meetings can contact Rivers or Vick at their legislative offices.
