Great Town Hall meeting last weekend

Rep-Elect Joan McBride, Sen-Elect Cyrus Habib and I had a great, if lightly attended town hall meeting last week at Redmond City Hall. We’ll do more of these, and I’ll get my email notification system working more effectively by then. I think there is one schedule in late February.


The Reporter papers covered it, if somewhat desultorily. Mostly we talked about the budget, but also some education policy issues, transportation, and mental health came up a lot.

We’re also looking at doing some telephone ton hall meetings, which people seem to like, and looking into how we could do regular “office hours” on the web. Any suggestions for how we do this technologically would be great. Send us tech suggestions in email. GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Lync…?

  1. I’m sorry I missed it – I will check back in to see when the February one is! I’ve had good experiences with GoToMeeting and Google Hangouts in the past. Good luck! – Cheryl Crow (not the singer)
