8th LD Town Hall Recording
CougVotes is pleased to present a public Town Hall to address the concerns of the constituents of Washington’s 4th Congressional District. We have invited Rep. Dan Newhouse, our Congressman, and his staffers from the Richland office to field YOUR questions about federal policy and how it affects Central Washington. If Rep. Newhouse or his staffers can’t make it, we will have a panel ready to answer questions based on Rep. Newhouse’s public statements.
The event will be held in the East Auditorium (TEST 266) on the WSU Tri-Cities campus.
All constituents of Washington’s 4th Congressional District are welcome to attend. If you’re not sure which district you live in, please check if Rep. Newhouse is your Representative: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
We invite constituents with all political perspectives, but we emphasize the importance of civility and respectful discourse at this event.
Seating is limited to 150 people, so please show up early. We plan to live-stream this event on Facebook and will try to take questions from viewers as well as the audience.

Indivisible: Washington State 4th Congressional District
The Young Democrats of Tri Cities met tonight. Ansley Gerhard did an AWESOME job with some help by Dylan Wright-Mockler. More than 50 people showed up. They’re resurrecting this organization, brushing off the dust, rolling up their sleeves and getting to work.
We’re proud of you, ready to help you however we can, and so excited to be working with you going forward.
