By Chuck Richards, PSARA Government Relations Co-Chair
PSARA’s Legislative Conference on Nov. 12 will feature two knowledgeable and excellent speakers: Speaker of the House Frank Chopp and PSARA Lobbyist, Pam Crone (both of whom are PSARA members!). Both speakers will provide their analysis of the impact the 2014 election will have on the 2015 Legislative session and the likelihood of success for PSARA’s 2015 Legislative Agenda. (See President’s column on page 3 for proposals on our Legislative Agenda.)
After the speakers and the Q & A, PSARA members will have a discussion about our legislative program and our work during the 2015 Legislative session. We will then break into table discussions by legislative districts to plan appointments with legislators before the session begins on January 12.
The gathering will be on Wednesday, November 12, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at UFCW Local 21 on 5030 First Ave. S., Seattle. A light breakfast will be served. Parking is available in the parking lot or on the street.
