Second District Rep. Rick Larsen met with Brier city officials and a handful of residents at a hastily-called Town Hall at Brier City Hall on Saturday. The public appearance was announced by the congressman’s staff late Thursday.
Subjects discussed by Larsen included the bridge replacement efforts on the I-5 bridge that collapsed into the Skagit River, the Affordable Health Care Act, efforts to encourage more Boeing production in Snohomish County, and the federal government’s role in regulating genetically-modified foods.
Larsen is scheduled to return to Washington D.C. on Sunday for four weeks of congressional sessions. Congress has a one-week break around Independence Day, then reconvenes for four week in July. Larsen is expected to return to the Second District in early August for some public appearances and some family vacation time.
