Local congressman forms youth-focused advisory board

November 1, 2011

By Staff

U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert, Issaquah’s representative in Congress, is forming a youth-focused advisory board and needs local high school students to apply.

Reichert, a former King County sheriff and Auburn Republican, seeks students from throughout the 8th Congressional District.

Contact Reichert’s Mercer Island district office at http://reichert.house.gov/contact or 206-275-3438 to learn more. The office has also informed school administrators and teachers in the district about the opportunity.

“I’m excited to form the Youth Advisory Board because young people are impacted greatly by the decisions of policymakers at all levels of government — their voices should be heard,” Reichert said in a statement. “Participants will learn about public policy and I am eager to exchange ideas and hear their feedback.”

In addition to Issaquah, the district includes Bellevue, Renton, and other Eastside and South King County cities. The district stretches south into rural Pierce County.
