Rep. Mark Hargrove to host telephone town-hall meeting Feb. 22
February 14, 2011 · 12:44 PM
Rep. Mark Hargrove, R-Covington, invites constituents to participate in a live telephone town hall Feb. 22 to discuss legislative issues.
The call will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. and last one hour. Constituents can participate by dialing 1-877-229-8493 and, when prompted, entering PIN number 17556. Once on the line, callers will be able to ask a question by pressing star 3 (*3) on their telephone keypads. Operators will assist callers to go “live” with Hargrove, who represents the 47th District, during the telephone town hall.
“As a new legislator, this call will be a great way to listen to what constituents are concerned about and what solutions they would like to see put forward this year,” Hargrove said. “We have a lot of serious decisions ahead with regard to education and the budget, among other things, and this two-way dialog will play a key role in the decisions I make on legislation.”
At the end of the one-hour teleforum, anyone who stays on the line can leave a voicemail message with comments or questions, which will be forwarded to his office.
Hargrove encourages residents who cannot attend the call to e-mail, write or call his office with questions and ideas.
“I represent everyone in the district. What they think is critically important to me serving them to the best of my ability,” added Hargrove.
Hargrove's district includes portions of Kent and Auburn, as well as Covington, Lea Hill, Ravensdale and other communities in South King County.
