As the Edmonds School District tries to deal with a loss of state funding, it’s giving parents the chance to speak directly with lawmakers who made the cuts.
State legislators representing the 1st, 21st and 32nd State Legislative Districts will participate in an “Ask Your Legislator” Forum beginning at 7 p.m., Monday, May 17.
“This is a great opportunity for citizens to ask their questions, face to face, with those who affect us and our children’s lives so directly,” said Ken Bogle, Legislative Representative for the Edmonds PTSA Council and lead organizer of the forum. “It will be a live civics lesson with our political representatives, and a chance to ask them about school funding, their intentions and motives.”
Five of the nine elected officials from the three districts have committed to attend, including 1st District Legislators Senator Rosemary McAuliffe and Representative Al O’Brien (both whom represent Lynnwood), 21st District Representative Mary Helen Roberts, and 32nd District Representatives Maralyn Chase and Ruth Kagi.
The forum begins at 7 p.m. in the Edmonds School District Board room located in the Educational Services Center (ESC), 20420 68th Avenue West in Lynnwood.
