In town, at a hall. It’s a town hall meeting

OLYMPIA -- With the session about two-thirds gone, some legislators are using the time this weekend or next week to check in with the voters and talkabout what's happened so far, and what's up next.

In the Spokane area, legislators from the 6th District have town hall meetings on Saturday, while House members in the 4th District are doing one by phone rence on Tuesday. Here's the info on both.

Democratic Sen. Chris Marr and Rep. John Driscoll have two meetings Saturday:
10 a.m. at Northwood Middle School, 13120 N. Pittsburgh
 2 p.m. at Hamblen Elementary, 2121 E. Thurston.

Republican Rep. Kevin Parker also has two meetings, but at different locales:
9 a.m. at Ridgeview Elementary, 5610 N. Maple
11 a.m. at the Museum of Arts and Culture, 2316 W. First.

Republican Reps. Larry Crouse and Matt Shea have a "telephone town hall" starting at 6:50 p.m. Tuesday. To participate, dial in close to that time at 1-877-229-8493, and use a PIN of 15550.

On a "newsy" note, a group of social, education and environmental organizations supporting tax increases to stave off further program cuts is mobilizing forces to attend the town hall meetings of Democrats. A  notice from Rebuilding Our Economic Future Coalition is asking for its supporters to attend the Marr/Driscoll events.
