Today you have a chance to speak with your congressman by telephone about the fiscal cliff or any other federal matter that concerns you.
Until the end of the year, all Whatcom County residents are represented by Rick Larsen (D-Everett), elected to his seventh term in November. Next year, he’ll represent Bellingham and the southwest county, while most of the rural county will fall within District 1, represented by Democrat Suzan DelBene.
More than the fiscal cliff is on citizens’ minds after the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Here’s a link to co-blogger John Stark’s post, which includes a discussion of the gun control debate with a statement from Rep. Larsen.
Here’s the announcement of tonight’s telephone town hall from Larsen’s office:
