Legislators invite 23rd District residents to March 12 community forums

With the 2011 legislative session at its halfway mark, lawmakers are going home for a day to hear what’s on the minds of their constituents.

Sen. Phil Rockefeller, D-Bainbridge Island, Rep. Sherry Appleton, D-Poulsbo, and Rep. Christine Rolfes, D-Bainbridge Island, will host community forums in Bremerton and Poulsbo on March 12.

As the Legislature addresses a shortfall of more than $4 billion in the state operating budget, the three lawmakers expect budgetary and economic issues to dominate the discussions. Other topics could include ferry service, public safety, environmental protection, education, health care and more.

The forums are open to the public:

— 9:30-11:00 a.m.: Manette Community Church Social Hall, 1137 Hayward Ave., Bremerton.

— 1:30-3 p.m., Poulsbo Library, 700 NE Lincoln Road, Poulsbo.

Questions? Call Rockefeller's office, (360) 786-7644; Appleton, (360) 786-7934; Rolfes, (360) 786-7842.
