15 District lawmakers to host virtual town hall meeting March 22

Sen. Nikki Torres, R-Pasco and Reps. Bruce Chandler, R-Granger, and Bryan Sandlin, R-Zillah, are inviting 15th Legislative District community members to their virtual town hall to hear an update on the 2023 legislative session. The three lawmakers are encouraging all constituents to attend to share their opinion on issues before the Legislature, voice their concerns and discuss ideas for better government.

  • What: 15th Legislative District Virtual Town Hall
  • When: Wednesday, March 22, 2023, 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.
  • Where: Virtual. Register for the Zoom-hosted event here: https://tinyurl.com/2bmm6t8b

The virtual town hall will be conducted using the Zoom platform. Those who would like to participate must register in advance.

“This is my first opportunity to participate in a virtual town hall meeting since being sworn in as a lawmaker,” said Torres, who is serving her first term in the Legislature. “I’m looking forward to hearing directly from our friends and neighbors from across the district and sharing with them what we’ve been doing on their behalf over in Olympia. The more participation, the better, because that direct communication and feedback is critical to us doing our job.”

Chandler agreed. “These town halls – be they in person, over the phone or through Zoom – are so valuable,” he said. “They help me a tremendous amount as I make decisions critical for the success of our district and state. I urge every 15th District resident who is able to participate to do so and let their voice be heard.”

Sandlin, a lifelong resident of the Yakima Valley who began working on his family farm at age 12, said the virtual town-hall format is perfect for members of the 15th District’s large agricultural community, who otherwise might not be able to attend a single in-person event.

“From broadband to irrigation, there are a number of issues before the Legislature that will directly affect our farmers,” said Sandlin. “We need to hear from those in the ag community, so that we can take their comments directly to Olympia. This virtual town hall is a great opportunity to get their input and hear their concerns.”

The 2023 regular legislative session is scheduled to last 105 days and adjourn on April 23.
