Holmquist Newbry announces dates for final ‘District Office Days’
Retiring state senator to say farewell to constituents after 14 years of service
Residents of the 13th Legislative District are invited to visit with Sen. Janéa Holmquist Newbry for her traditional “District Office Days,” to be held during the first full week of October, across the district. These will be the final district-office days for the retiring Republican senator who has represented the people of the 13th Legislative District for the past 14 years.
“These district-office days have been a valuable tool that I have really enjoyed,” said Holmquist Newbry, R-Moses Lake. “They have helped me stay connected with my bosses – the taxpayers, families, employers and workers I have been sent to Olympia to represent; they have made me a better legislator.
“I look forward to seeing everyone again in October and getting the chance to thank them personally for their participation in these great events.”
Details for the final district-office days are:
Grant County residents: Tuesday, Oct. 7 at Sen. Holmquist Newbry’s 13th District Office, 326 S. Cedar St., Moses Lake from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Lincoln County residents: Wednesday, Oct. 8 at the Lincoln County Courthouse, 450 Logan Street, Davenport, from 10 a.m. to noon
Kittitas County residents: Thursday, Oct. 9 at the Kittitas County Courthouse, Commissioners’ Conference Room, 205 W. 5th Avenue, Ellensburg, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
· Yakima County residents: Friday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to noon at Moxee City Hall, 255 W. Seattle, Moxee.
No appointment is necessary. For those unable to attend one of the district-office days, the senator may also be contacted at her Olympia office at (360) 786-7624, or via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Holmquist Newbry was first elected to the Senate in 2006, after serving three terms as a 13th District state representative. At 31, she became the youngest female state senator in Washington history. As chairwoman of the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee, she has been an effective and committed voice for lower taxes and less regulation, and has spent her service in the Legislature fighting for small businesses, farms and working families.
Her term will expire Jan. 1, 2015.
