Thank you for reading the first edition of Our Community at the Capitol, a regular email that will feature visitors from our beautiful and diverse 20th Legislative District.
The 20th District includes South Thurston County communities like Tenino and Rainier, Lewis and Cowlitz counites east of Interstate 5 and extends to northern Clark County, including the communities of Ridgefield and La Center.
The borders of the 20th District were redrawn during the redistricting process that happens every decade by the State's bipartisan Washington State Redistricting Commission. If you don't know which district you live in, you can find out by entering your address into the Legislature's District Finder tool here.
Pages from the district
On Wednesday, Jan. 18, I had the privilege of meeting with two bright and talented young people who served as pages. James Hastings, a student at Centralia Christian School, was a page for Rep. Andrew Barkis. And Messina Occhino, a student at Chehalis Middle School, was a page for my seatmate Rep. Ed Orcutt.
Lewis County ABATE chapter
This morning, I met with members of the Lewis County chapter of ABATE of Washington, a group dedicated to motorcycle awareness, safety, education, and freedom of choice.
South Sound Officials Association
Last week, I met with members of the South Sound Officials Association. These folks make it possible for our youth athletes to play under the “Friday Night Lights.” We discussed a recent Capital Budget allocation to help officials manage games and players more efficiently and safely.
Lewis County Court Clerk Scott Tinney
On Jan. 11, Lewis County Court Clerk Scott Tinney stopped by the office after the State of the Judiciary address given by Washington State Supreme Court Chief Justice Gonzalez. We discussed court efficiency and safety.
Stay involved and in touch!
As much as I love meeting constituents in person, I know that's not possible for everyone. I encourage you to visit my website at RepresentativePeterAbbarno.com or contact me if you have questions, comments, or suggestions about the Legislature or state government.
It's an honor to serve you.
