Representative Pollett Having "Traveling Town Hall Meeting" Tomorrow at Burgermaster

A Blog reader let us know that Representataive Gerry Pollett is starting his "Travelling Town Hall Meetings" tomorrow with his first stop at Burgermaster (3040 NE 45th Street) tomorrow from 10-noon.
The information says:

Pollet is holding these “drop-in office hours” with constituents most every Saturday morning during the 2014 legislative session (unless the House of Representatives is meeting in session on the House floor in Olympia).
“I look very forward to hearing what’s on people’s minds on any legislative topic,” Pollet said. “It should be easier for constituents to meet with their legislators than it is for lobbyists to meet with us in Olympia. Regular folks can’t go to Olympia to give me input during the legislative session, so my weekly Traveling Town Halls make it much easier for constituents to see me and discuss any issue with me.”

Pollet launched his traveling-office tradition two years ago, hosting Saturday-morning meetings all over the 46th Legislative District during the 2012 session. With the 2014 session convening Monday morning, Jan. 13, he said he wants residents from neighborhoods to have a chance to speak their minds without having to trudge all the way down to Olympia.

Pollet is the only legislator who returns to his legislative district every weekend to meet with constituents during a legislative session.
