Still waiting on a constituent meeting with Rep. Newhouse

Letter to the Editor


After several months of repeated phone calls to Representative Newhouse’s staff, I finally received confirmation that he will be scheduling a

constituent meeting during the April in-district work session (sometime between April 10th and April 21st).

This meeting will likely take place in Yakima, but all from the 4th district who want their voice heard by Newhouse should plan to attend! Meeting directly with our elected officials is the most effective way to make our voices heard and our beliefs represented in our democratic government.

Unfortunately, we have yet to receive specifics on the exact date, time, and location the constituent meeting will take place. For those of us who will have a long day of travel for the event, this is quite frustrating. In the professional world, a meeting such as this would be scheduled months in advance and advertised widely. For such an important component of democracy, I would expect our representatives to extend us the same courtesy.

Representative Newhouse, please publish the time, date, and location of your April constituent meeting as soon as possible!
