Sen. Fortunato hosts Jan. 8 town hall

The town hall will be from 7 to 8 p.m.

Sen. Phil Fortunato of the 31st Legislative District will be hosting a virtual town hall on Friday, Jan. 8, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

This is the second town hall the Senator has hosted.

The first, his website reads, “was a big success. We had a nice size crowd and were able to have an open discussion on a lot of great topics from transportation to taxes, COVID response and more.”

“It was such a hit, that I’m hosting another one to really focus on the upcoming legislative session that will start this coming Monday, Jan. 11,” Fortunato continued. “Please spread the word in our district. I take my job seriously of representing all my constituents in the 31st District, but that can’t happen if I don’t hear from you.”

To attend via Zoom, use meeting ID 959 0973 0399, passcode 696068.

To attend via phone, dial (253) 215-8782 and use passcode 696068.
