State Reps. Glenn Anderson and Jay Rodne invite 5th Legislative District constituents to a telephone “town hall meeting” Wednesday.

The discussion is scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m. and last for 60 minutes. The legislators plan to take questions, share views about the ongoing legislative session and offer constituents a chance to take part in poll questions.

“We hope this is a convenient way for those we represent to talk to and hear from us directly,” Anderson said in a release. “We encourage people to call in and participate at any level they feel comfortable.”

Call the toll-free number at 1-877-229-8493 and enter the code 15549 at the prompt. Then, participants can select *3 on the telephone keypad to ask a question.

“This technology allows us to have a large community conversation without anyone having to leave their homes,” Rodne said in a release. “We look forward to hearing what folks have to say and sharing our views on the issue facing our communities.”

Residents can also contact Anderson 360-786-7876 or glenn.anderson@leg.wa.gov and Rodne at 360-786-7852 or jay.rodne@leg.wa.gov.

Anderson, a six-term Fall City Republican, has represented Issaquah and other 5th Legislative District communities in East King County since 2001. Republican Rodne has served in the state House of Representatives since 2004.

The district stretches from Issaquah to Snoqualmie Pass, and from Sammamish to Maple Valley.
