Sen. Maralyn Chase D-Edmonds
By Cynthia Sheridan

Washington State Senator Maralyn Chase, D-32 addressed a lively crowd of constituents at a town hall meeting held Saturday morning March 10 in Edmonds.

For two hours she answered questions and spoke about recent state legislative activities. Most animated discussions centered around gun control, property taxes, the fish and wildlife commission and the recent public disclosure bill that passed both houses but ultimately was vetoed by the governor.

Senator Chase was well informed and especially enthused about tuition-free education for low income students; adjustments to GED testing to increase success rates; relief from discrimination for section 8 housing applicants, and pay equity for women, all of which had bills approved in the last session.

Senator Chase spoke hopefully about property tax relief by ‘restoring the base”, rural access to the internet, and supporting Initiative 1600 health care for all. She also expressed a strong interest in small business owners. The National Minority Business Advisory Council recently honored Senator Chase by naming her 2017’s Legislator of the Year.

In closing, Senator Chase encouraged her audience to attend future town hall meetings and to follow the legislative process on public access TVW. She also welcomed guests to visit her website or to contact her legislative office.

Sen. Chase represents the 32nd legislative district which includes all of Shoreline and Woodway, and portions of NW Seattle, Edmonds, Lynnwood, and Mountlake Terrace.
