Letter: Kudos to 8th District legislators

February 4, 2014 

We recently participated in a telephone town hall meeting with our Washington 8th Legislative District's Sen. Sharon Brown and Reps. Larry Haler and Brad Klippert. Our question was about a report in the Herald about the governor's office denying that he wants to implement a "carbon tax." As I suspected, the governor's press folks were not being honest!

I failed to say, before I lost the microphone and the question was answered, that we wish we could move these three from our state's 8th Legislative District to Washington, D.C. to replace the senators and representative who are not representing us.
