Report on Legislator meetings

LWVM-DC Spokesperson Linda Hanson, Judy Kapoun, Julie Mason, and Katie Williams met with Senators Tim Lanane and Mike Gaskill and Representatives Sue Errington and Melanie Wright.  Representative Kevin Mahan had to cancel our appointment at the last minute.  With each of our legislators we were able to discuss the necessity for Redistricting Reform during this session as well as gun safety bills, natural resources bills, and education legislation we support (more on those specifics bills will be forthcoming). 

Each of our legislators would appreciate feedback from constituents about legislative priorities.  To provide yours, go to Senator Lanane’s or your Representative’s website and click on their legislative survey.  They want to be able to speak from awareness of their constituents’ opinions!
