Jay Inslee meets with concerned citizens

Congressman Jay Insee hosted a Town Hall meeting last Saturday at the Mountlake Terrace Elementary School gymnasium. A couple hundred citizens showed up at the meeting that covered topics such as the economy, jobs, energy, the BP oil spill, Community Transit and more.

Inslee started out the meeting by honoring Mountlake Terrace resident Vic Sood, who started Community Transit and has played a very important role in the Mountlake Terrace community for many years including helping create the farmer’s market.

The congressman was mostly positive on where our country is heading but adamant that we have a long way to go. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions about pre-selected topics by writing their name on a piece of paper and putting it in boxes that represented the pre-selected topics Inslee spoke on. Inslee took several questions on each topic and was even applauded on several of his answers.

One of Jay Inslee’s opponents in the upcoming 2010 election, James Watkins, also attended the event with several of his supporters. The streets were lined with Watkins signs and his supporters were handing out flyers upon entrance to the gymnasium. From James Watkins’ posts on Facebook it was obvious that he wasn’t as fond of Inslee’s comments as the audience:
